Firm Notes

Kwan Henmi was an architectural partnership that operated in San Francisco, CA. In 2017, it employed 23 design professionals and 27 staff members. It was purchased by the DLR Group in 05/2017, and became a division of that firm. According to its merger press release Kwan Henmi had the following mission statement: "Kwan Henmi is a design firm based in San Francisco, dedicated to providing high quality architecture, interior design, and planning services with expertise in residential, educational, civic, transportation, and commercial market sectors. The firm believes in making a meaningful contribution toward a sustainable built environment in the communities we serve. Kwan Henmi designs thought-provoking, modern architecture utilizing the best contemporary building technologies and practices. A collaborative process is central to the firm’s design methodology. Kwan Henmi brings together the diverse experience of staff and consultants, and their extensive local knowledge, to deliver exceptional design and value to clients." In this new arrangement, Kwan and Henmi headed DLR operations in San Francisco, while Adrian Cohen would oversee all CA operations from an office in Los Angeles.
