At Coelacanth K&H Architects, we don’t want to create monuments. We want to create architecture that becomes a part of everyday life — architecture that takes into account the sun, wind, urban environment, and other existing elements. Buildings that forge a link between the history of people and places and their future.
To archive that goal, we focus on anticipating future needs and communicating with the client, who provides key information to guide our design. We hope that when our clients begin to use their new space, they’ll find a fresh atmosphere — something different from anything they’ve experienced before.
