WHAT WE DO
We have over forty years’ experience designing and delivering private homes across London, the UK and abroad. We offer an integrated design service that responds to our client’s needs, budget, and lifestyle. We combine a keen eye for design with passion and experience to create high-quality spaces and interiors.Private Residential Portfolio
Multi-residential and masterplanning projects are often complex, long term and involve many stakeholders. KSR has delivered award winning developments that create positive spaces to respect the local environment and community whilst optimising site values.Read More
For over 15 years KSR has been using Revit as a building information modelling (BIM) tool for design and documentation to generate and manage building data. Having captured its potential at an early stage, we have successfully delivered projects by sharing the project model with the project team leading to tangible benefits in presentation, coordination and quality.CGIs and Visualisations
We have found that cultivating excellent working relations with local planning departments helps us to realise ambitious projects with the most favourable permissions. We aim to communicate with planning officers in order to beneficially negotiate the planning system.
KSR has a proven track record for delivering high quality buildings to delighted clients. We apply the same care and attention to detail throughout the construction process including preparing robust technical packages and monitoring on site.
KSR’s success is built on repeat business through establishing relationships and partnerships. We are very proud that over 90% of our work is from previous clients or referrals which is a reflection of the quality of our service and product. We ensure that:
• partners have direct involvement with every project, supported by an enthusiastic, knowledgeable team;
• we follow a clear process in which the client is actively involved throughout, from initial planning to matters of detail;
• we create a product that exceeds the client’s expectations and reflects the very best.
KSR addresses sustainability with design that balances quality, energy efficiency and cost effectiveness at all stages of the project, while maintaining a high level of design and timeless aesthetics.
We work closely with our clients, consultants and relevant professionals to implement sustainable design on a wide range of projects; from private residential to urban master planning. Our approach is tailored to each project, focusing on the social, economic and environmental needs to create productive, healthy environments that will consider present and future generations.
We believe that sustainability should not compromise the function or beauty of a design. We always aim to exceed regulations wherever possible by improving efficiency and reducing the building’s carbon footprint as well as minimising the impact on climate change.
Our staff are our most valuable asset who are treated as family. This was reflected in a recent survey when the words most staff associated with KSR were Supportive, Collaborative, Fun and Family. Our diverse workforce brings a richness to the practice where we respect and celebrate our various backgrounds.
Our thriving mentoring system provides all staff with a clear career path and encourages them to be involved with all aspects of office life.
We have built up a detailed knowledge of the property market, and in particular the residential sector, based on over 40 years of experience. This enables us to react quickly to provide imaginative, effective design solutions which add value. We are aware that a house is often the most significant investment that a client has ever made and we test our buildings, to ensure that the product is:
