10 Years, 100 Homes
We wanted to say a very big thank you to all our clients, contractors, and collaborators from the first decade of our practice, and to mark the 100 projects that we have worked on over that period, so we have created a celebratory card which incorporates a key elevation from each of those projects.
The card comprises five streets of Neil Kahawatte Architects designed homes, which are displayed in chronological order. Each row spans around 20 of our projects and shows the homes stitched together as an imaginary terrace.
Using one of the primary tools of our craft, our computer aided design (CAD) software, we took the primary elevation of each home (often the rear elevation where many of our schemes are most visible) and connected the party walls or garden boundaries of each.
Some projects such as flats are shown within much larger apartment buildings and others such as landscapes have no buildings at all. The intention was to capture a defining aspect of each scheme so that everyone can identify their own project(s).
After careful scaling, arrangement, and amalgamation, the drawing file was sent for laser cutting; a technique which gives the card its characteristic burnt edge appearance and allows us to reproduce the design as a gift.
If you have worked with us on any of these projects then we would love to offer to send you a copy of a relevant street of the card as a token of our appreciation. Please simply add your details to the delivery list using the link below.
And if you have only been working with us more recently and are part of this year’s cohort of projects, we’d like to include you to. We will be preparing an additional street of 2023 projects at the end of this year.
