WHY. We are passionate about exploring, developing and producing exceptional architecture. Working from the perspective of our clients, our culture and context we create buildings that are welcoming, warm and joyful.
KDA was started in 1984 by architect Charles Kahn to build community through thoughtful design. We are intrinsically drawn to places where people come together to share common experiences – restaurants, plazas and homes, hence our focus: EAT, SHOP & LIVE. Our carefully considered, inspired designs set the stage for engaging, rewarding experiences for the individuals and communities they serve.
Our firm is highly service-oriented: Every client relationship is unique and every design solution specific to the site, budget and schedule. We thrive on challenges and are particularly proud of our ability to get complex projects approved quickly and efficiently.
