We advise both major developers and occupiers in the financial, legal, insurance, media and corporate sectors across the world. Our innovative solutions are based on detailed research and experience working with occupiers and developers. Our goal is to create spaces that add value whilst integrating an enjoyable life and work balance – good design with ‘wow’.

    With over 20 years’ experience developing occupier strategies and their impact, Yetta’s role at KKS is essential in creating workplaces that deliver effective business performance.

Yetta Reardon Smith

KKS is female-led and the first commercial design studio to lead with occupier strategy rather than design. Katrina’s vision is to put the occupier – the human spirit – at the heart of everything she creates. This approach to treating people as individuals, supporting their talents and providing flexibility, so that all can flourish is evident throughout the office environment at KKS. We bring the human touch to our work, building client relationships and retaining employees through our insight and nurturing quality.
