Thom Kilvert

Associate Director

Thom studied architecture at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and the University of Westminster prior to joining the office in 2005.


His first project for the office was the refurbishment of the 1930s Wellcome Trust Headquarters which created new exhibition galleries and conference spaces.  He subsequently ran the detailed design and delivery of the façade package for the Frick Chemistry Laboratory at Princeton University in the US, and worked on the early stages of design for a 500 bed hospital in La Spezia, Italy.


Thom was Project Architect for the London 2012 Velodrome, one of the four permanent Olympic venues. He oversaw the detailed design of this 6,000 seat stadium and was based on site for the majority of the construction period. He was also heavily involved with the legacy transformation works, which converted the Games–time venue into a community facility set within the wider Lee Valley Velopark.


Thom has since worked on the refurbishment of the East Wing Tower for St Thomas’ Hospital in London, the Pottery and Stables Project at the Grade I listed Holkham Hall, and was part of the team responsible for delivering a new pavilion for Herne Hill Velodrome in south London.


He was heavily involved in the Masterplanning of the MK:U Campus, with a particular emphasis on the Academic Buildings, and is currently overseeing the design and delivery of 6 new indoor tennis courts and associated Members’ facilities for the All England Lawn Tennis Club at Somerset Road, Wimbledon.
