KSA. Residential architects whose key concern is what a place will be like for the people who live there.

People. The centre of everything we do.


KSA’s core ethos puts people at the heart of our thinking and our actions.

These may be prospective residents who must be able to flourish in the spaces we create; the communities who will interact with and influence our developments; our clients, whose investments it is our duty to maximise and protect; or our team of Placemakers, whose personal wellbeing and professional growth we are committed to nurturing.

By focusing on human needs and ambitions, we capture the essence of what makes a place great to live and work in.


One for all and all for one.

We are a multi-disciplinary architectural practice where diversely specialised professionals work with a clear synergy between disciplines. This ensures that whatever we do is deliverable, cost effective, adds value and enhances the built environment to the benefit of everyone who comes into contact with a place we have made.

Some of the organisations we’ve made great places with.

We work with housing associations, charities, local authorities and private developers, and enjoy long term relationships with many of these, resulting in repeat commissions. We see all our clients as equal stakeholders in making great places.

Discover more about KSA.

It is impossible to acquire a true picture of an architectural practice from consideration of any one aspect in isolation.

The whole is the sum of many parts: the practice culture, its way of working, its heritage and the individual talents and personalities working in and leading it.

If you are assessing residential architect firms with a view to drawing up a shortlist, please spend a few minutes exploring the key components of KSA’s success.
