We Design to Inspire and Delight

Great places bring out the best in us, stir us to aspire to greater heights.  Great design can make a place unforgettable, bring it life with personality, energy, and promise. 

We create places that are gracious in context, and iconic to our clients’ communities.  We design for impact, bringing to life innovative places of learning, commerce and community. 

Innovating in the Intersections

KSS is relentless, fearless in imagining what places can be and how they can function. Yesterday’s solutions can not solve today’s challenges.

We embrace developing the new place that straddles building archetypes, unlocking the potential within the complex program or the challenging context.

We are connected by a common passion to make our clients successful through great design

We Are United by Design

We believe that design can only achieve greatness when built upon human relationships.

Trust—between client and their community, between architect and their client—rises from accountability. Within that trust we design places that facilitate and celebrate interwoven relationships, creating rich and rewarding communtities.

We're working on producing some very exciting videos. Stay tuned for their release, coming soon to a website near you!
