Harriman Kinyon Architects: Firm Profile
Harriman Kinyon Architects, Inc. is an architecture firm based in Walnut Creek that was established over 40 years ago which offers our services primarily in healthcare and affordable housing markets throughout the Western region of California and Nevada. The firm’s philosophy has been to work on projects that have a true impact and vital service to our community as well as to deliver projects that will allow for the best possible level of care and contribute to better experiences for the patients that are served by these facilities.
The Oakland Broadway project was on a very tight narrow site, originally on four separate parcels. The existing three buildings on the site were removed to make way for a new two story medical office building along the very busy and highly visible corridor of Broadway. Multiple factors had to be coordinated for this development of the project which included keeping the existing 25 foot high retaining wall at one side of the property as well as cooperating with the residential neighbors so that the building blended into this community.
In Castro Valley, we were able to take an oddly shaped property at a great location near the medical corridor of the community. Though this challenging sloped site was small, we were still able to design the layout of the site with the needed building footprint, parking and landscape areas. This project also had multiple governing agencies and departments to coordinate and communicate with this development.
We are also working currently on an existing multi-family housing property in Napa, CA. The remodel of this project includes a new community room, leasing office as well as rehabilitating of the property with new accessible rental units and upgrading the existing kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, heating & cooling, plumbing, painting and new site work with updated drainage, parking striping, landscaping and site lighting.
