KSS celebrates 30 years

Architecture and design practice KSS is celebrating its 30th birthday this year and the company has thanked everyone who has been a part of its journey over the past three decades.

KSS, which has offices in central London and Kent, was founded by David Keirle, Martin Salter and Andy Simons, and currently has projects across a range of sectors including sport, education and residential.

The firm’s initial commission was to transform Stamford Bridge and the surrounding area for Premier League football club Chelsea. KSS still counts Chelsea as a client and the company recently worked with the club on its Westview project, which marks the biggest development to Stamford Bridge’s West Stand since 2001.

KSS is also working with Leicester City on the planned expansion of King Power Stadium (pictured). Leicester last month revealed the first renderings of the project, which will see the stadium’s capacity increase from 32,000 to 40,000.

The company’s client list also includes fellow Premier League clubs Brighton & Hove Albion and Liverpool. KSS recently revealed details of a complete hospitality upgrade at Brighton’s American Express Community Stadium, while its work with Liverpool included the development of Anfield’s Main Stand and a new training centre for the club.

Other sports projects KSS has worked on include the redevelopment of Wimbledon’s No.1 Court, Qatar’s 40,000-seat Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium and the expansion of the East Stand at Twickenham.

Simons, KSS director, said in a blog post: “We would like to thank everyone who has been a part of the first three decades of KSS. We are delighted to be celebrating this milestone with you all and look forward to meeting in person soon.”
