Kiawah Island site visit

Kiawah Island site visit

In January we visited our Kiawah Island project in South Carolina, USA. The beach house construction is well under way and is rapidly taking the shape that for so long we have only imagined from architectural plans.

It’s so exciting to see the project take shape and to do some serious on-the-ground sourcing in beautiful Charleston. There are so many products and suppliers in the local area that exude quality and will add real depth to this house, doing it the justice it deserves. We have taken inspiration from the other stunning developments on Kiawah Island, though remembering that each has its own individual character. We are adding the Gomm Studio style to this Deep South luxury island and mixing some of our best ideas from other projects while strictly sticking to the client’s brief that this be a relaxing and playful family home.

Have a look through some photos below, and check up on our progress when we make our next visit in a few months to begin the interiors installation.


The pool and covered seating area will house an outdoor swing seat, barbecue and pizza oven and is expected to be the social centre of the house.
