At the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, California, KHA Interiors began by creating a comprehensive program through a series of carefully conducted interviews with all users. The program encompassed not only the requirements of the Cathedral and its attendant Mausoleum, but Chancery offices, Rectory and Conference Center as well. By selecting complimentary furnishings and fixtures for the Rectory and Diocesan offices, KHA Interiors was able to create a serene atmosphere for priests, office staff and parishioners.

For the Aspen Highlands Village project, KHA Interiors took on the challenge of coordinating a diverse group of designers to create a Ritz Carlton Hotel encompassing three buildings designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects. KHA Interiors detailed and documented the interior spaces for this mountain hotel resort.

KHA Interiors has been an instrumental team member in several important museum projects. To produce a highly detailed program for the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion, KHA Interiors took the initiative to observe and carefully document the glass-making process from the hot shop to the flame work studio. Also integral to this program was a thorough understanding of the stringent storage requirements and conservation protocol for the museum’s priceless glass collection. In the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, KHA Interiors followed a restrained approach to furnishing office, educational and conference areas. The lively atmosphere of the contemporary café, designed by KHA Interiors, fits comfortably in the dynamic oval space designed by Tadao Ando Architect and Associates. Of particular note is the elegant gallery benches designed in collaboration with the Museum.

Whether programming a million square feet for a large university or designing a piece of furniture, KHA Interiors provides an innovative, hands-on approach to each design challenge. KHA Interiors will provide any or all of the following services: programming, test fits, space planning, complete interior architecture design services including furniture, fixture and equipment specifications.
