2018 Marks a Special Anniversary for HKIT Architects:  70 Years of Continuous Practice in the Bay Area!

We are excited to celebrate seven decades of shaping our community with “Architecture that enriches the community and environment.”

Join us for a look at our legacy of civic and socially-responsible projects and the people that have contributed to the firm’s success. HKIT was founded in 1948 by Donald L. Hardison, FAIA, who was later joined by Richard Komatsu, FAIA. Former classmates at U.C. Berkeley, Don and Rich collaborated on a number of iconic projects throughout the Bay Area, including churches, multi-family housing, municipal and school buildings. Over the course of our anniversary year we will be sharing a chronological view of our historical work along with our recent and current projects in bi-monthly newsletter updates. Here is a preview of some of the projects the firm is proud to have as part of their legacy.
