KAT is found in the Kensington Town Hall / Town Center  (formerly the Armory). It is a red brick building located behind the Kensington Safeway at the corner of Armory Avenue and Mitchell Street. Look for a large red-brick building that looks like a castle (see picture). The parking lot and Town Hall main entrance is on Mitchell Street.
