Kabina Logo Border


Kabina was founded with one goal. To build exceptional, yet affordable homes on flood risk land across the UK.

The British public is underserved by traditional housebuilders, the climate emergency demands action and current town planning creates poorly connected satellite communities.

Kabina believes that we all need a new, imaginative approach, informed by sound technology, to meet these challenges.

Step in, The Kabina Method.


Britain has an abundance of suitable flood risk land which can be safely developed with appropriate, adaptive building methods.


Today, we continue to build in flood risk areas using unsuitable traditional methods belying the increased risk of flooding events....
