A traditional South African structure, a Lapa (Pronounced “Larpa”.)
has a timber frame and a fully thatched roof, providing a beautiful, contemporary entertaining area or extra room in the garden.
The Lapa Company, based in Kent, creates authentic Lapas. Each structure is designed and built by hand to customers’ individual specifications, so that no two are the same. They can be made to any shape or size. The company uses traditional materials, such as Cape Reed for the thatch and natural hardwood timber from Africa for the frame, to design a structure that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
