Virtual Shotgun House Tour: Explore the home of KV Harper
Click here to register for this Zoom webinar.
Explore the beautiful home of KV Harper, principal and founder of the architecture planning and interiors firm KEX Design + Build. In renovating her Seventh Ward double shotgun, Harper added layers of rich colors that speak to the city’s tropical environment and its history. In her design projects — including local ones and working with clients in New York City, Amsterdam and London — KEX strives to make “design attainable for people in a way that celebrates diversity and really honors the architecture and the people and the culture of the cities that we’re in,” said Harper, who runs KEX from New York and New Orleans. Harper found the 2,800 square-foot double camelback shotgun online and made an offer before seeing it in person. The house dates to the 1920s or ’30s and was badly in need of repairs when she bought it. After buying the home in August 2016, Harper began a gut renovation that was completed in March 2017.
