'As the architects for our school project, from the beginning, KIN's whole-hearted commitment was commendable and very much appreciated. They worked with us from a very early stage in the project, attending meetings, providing advice, and helping guide the project. Their work ethic and willingness to support community projects is wonderful and will undoubtedly be of great help to any future projects and communities they work with.'
Ros Lucas, Client, North London Free School (community project)
'We were delighted with service offered by KIN. They provided us with both invaluable planning and design advice. They responded to what is a tight and difficult site with skill and imagination to achieve our planning permission. They were also happy to get involved in the discussions early on to establish the needs of the community and adopt a holistic approach to the project. The whole team were very helpful at all times and we would have no hesitation in recommending them or using their services again.'

'KIN provided a very professional, competitive, and most importantly (considering our lack of decisiveness) patient service. Thoroughly recommended.'
Philip Davies, Client, Room4 Music Studios (residential and commercial project)
'Our community gave Alex Whitcroft [a Director at KIN] a very tight budget to deliver a building with a complex brief and extremely high sustainability targets. These included LEED Platinum and Living Building Challenge certification, as well as meeting our community’s own sustainable material sourcing requirements. He worked closely with both the community and our project leadership committee, taking us from our ambitious but very outline brief to a beautifully designed building. This process included facilitating community workshops, as well as showing an amazing level of engagement and understanding of our community and its aspirations. His commitment, passion, patience, and tirelessly work was pivotal to the project. We would definitely recommend Alex, especially to other communities looking to start up or grow.'
Jennifer Martin, Client, DR Ecovillage (community project)
'KIN were recommended to me by a member of my family and were described as ‘professional, open-minded and innovative’. We worked collaboratively to create a design that I would be happy with now and for years to come. I am delighted with the result, and visitors are impressed by the finish. My home is a pleasure to live in. I am already thinking of a further project and will have no hesitation in returning to KIN.'
