Profile

Established in 1972, KHA is a leading architectural practice based in New York City. Our clients are public and private organizations with ambitious educational, cultural, and civic goals.

Our work is known for simplicity and directness, concern for human presence, and respect for the environment. Ours is an architecture of accommodation.

Since the beginning of our practice, our philosophy has remained the same:

We intend our projects to be clearly conceived and carefully made places that engage the past and imply connections to the future. We believe it is important that they engage the existing cultural and physical context, so that they become integral components of it; that they give direction to future uses and development, so that change and growth can be natural and coherent; that they fully develop the requirements and opportunities of program, so that they work well; and that their construction is congruent with available skills and funds, so that they are built well.
