KEX DESIGN + BUILD is a New Orleans & Brooklyn based firm. We are committed to developing environmentally and historically conscious design — we strive to create projects that aim to have minimal environmental impact while restoring building elements that truly provide our clients with functional and beautiful homes.
Our most ambitious project to date, is a home in the historic district of the Treme. The home required a complete overall including facade, entire exterior, interior and roof. The interior of the home is almost 2000 sq feet and has a new deck and back yard. The layout of the home includes a new chef's kitchen, 2 designer baths, 3 bedrooms and office.
Historic 7th Ward Double Shotgun
The 7th ward is one of our favorite neighborhoods in New Orleans. It's the first home to free people of color in the city and is an historically rich African- American neighborhood.
The home is a traditional double shot-gun that we kept in the original two unit configuration. We only used sustainable or reclaimed wood in the entire renovation — opting for reclaimed wood for all the trim and counter tops and sustainable new growth pine for the floors in the owner's unit.
Bed Stuy, Brooklyn
Bedford Stuyvesant is one of the oldest neighborhoods in New York City. We were lucky to find the Greene Ave Brownstone nestled on a quiet tree lined street in Bed Stuy. The home didn't have many original details; except the beautiful marble fireplaces. The brownstone consist of an owners duplex, and two rental units.
The renovation consisted of complete renovation of the entire building— including all the kitchens and bathrooms in the building. Along with a complete overall of the owner's garden.
