Multi-national design for a micropolitan corporate headquarters.


Cooper Tire & Rubber is a leading global competitor in the tire industry that is situated in the micropolitan city of Findlay, Ohio. With manufacturing facilities on three continents, and sales and distribution networks around the world, Cooper Tire & Rubber is faced with the task of meeting the expectations of the world's most dynamic markets.

We were tasked with designing the first ever Global Technology Center at Cooper's world headquarters. The design of the space included conference rooms, offices, meeting rooms, and a large open space of cubicles, as well as an adjacent lobby. The project involved the design of three major conference rooms tailored with cultural elements of each business partner throughout the world. Ultimately, the Global Technology Center was created utilizing inspired design to enhance the beauty of the space, as well as creating a productive and comfortable environment for employees and business partners alike. 

Addtionally, this project kick-started the creation of a new standard look for Cooper Tire & Rubber. Future projects involving interiors will be based off of the design of the Global Technology Center. 


A long awaited hometown brewery and tap room that can boast of it's craft beer and perfectly suited interior.


Over the last decade, Findlay Brewing Company has owned the craft beer scene in the Findlay area. In 2015, the time came for them to expand their brewing and tap room in an attempt to better keep up with the demand for their beer. Once they secured a large building in a prime downtown location, what was once just a dream started to take shape.

KHID developed a floor plan within the constraints of their building that maximized the brew area, designated space for a fully operational kitchen, as well as a sizeable tap room. With the desire to give Findlay what it was expecting in a brewery but with a unique, purposeful twist, the designers at KHID conducted "research" of numerous breweries in the Midwest. It quickly became evident that the design needed to hinge on the beautiful stainless steel tanks being visible from the tap room. The red of the existing steel structure of the building became the inspiration for the signature color moving forward, which was paired with a complimentary dark green. Warm natural wood elements, most evident in the custom bar top, were carefully crafted to balance the otherwise harsh, industrial elements of the building. The exterior metal siding was painted a striking black to increase visibility for Crawford St. patrons.


An Inspiring Space For a Creative Marketing Agency.


AR Marketing has served the Findlay area since 2009 by providing full-service marketing solutions to local businesses & Fortune 50 companies. In their steps toward growth and to improve their own company branding, they took a chance on the 2nd floor of an old brick building, which had not been inhabited for decades.

KHID was challenged to restore this diamond in the rough and unleash it's natural beauty. With inspiration from the old windows and a desire to let natural light flood the space, new glass partition walls became an integral part of the design. The ornate wood doors composed with a custom wood and cable stair system, elude to the big city feeling upon entering the building. Balancing creativity, vintage pieces, and function, the reinvented space evolved into a perfect fit for AR's graphic designers to work their magic.



A warm, intimate space for experiencing a more sophisticated distilled spirit, wrapped in the look and feel of the 1930s. 


The Bourbon Affair was born out of the desire of a few friends to bring the taste of bourbon and the nostalgia of the 1930s to downtown Findlay. After visiting many distilleries and gathering unique pieces of history at flea markets and antique shops, the owners of The Bourbon Affair came to KHID with everything they had gathered and asked us to kickstart the overall design.  

Beginning with the selection of dark navy and gold details on the facade, this new place was to draw more seasoned drinkers with its unique style and warmth. The entire space is meant to be more intimate, featuring a fireplace with leather couches that invite groups to stay even longer. A sizable ornate bar not only houses the revered bourbon collection but also serves to anchor the room. Other details we incorporated include the herringbone wall covering that is reminiscent of a weathered men's suit coat, as well as vintage green and black wall tile in the restroom to enhance the 1930s feel to the space. We chose classic bentwood bar stools in a walnut finish and other furniture with pops of red and gold to liven the darker background upon which they sit. Custom stained concrete eludes to how it might have looked long ago after just having been polished for the day.

The Senate Cigar Lounge needed to strike a rich and sophisticated tone in order to encourage a relaxed environment for the enjoyment of fine cigars. A combination of deep maroons, dark wood wainscoting, and nail head details on the lounge chairs created such an environment. The red pendant light that is so amazingly tacky that it had to be displayed in the front window for all passersby to see; a welcome invitation to step back into the 1930s to a more sophisticated experience of distilled spirits.


A growing church looks to Make Room For Others


When Gateway Church found it’s weekly attendance growing the point of eclipsing the number of seats available during their worship services, a campaign to raise funds to make room for others was naturally the next step. Approval was given for the 3-year building project that would include the addition of a larger sanctuary, nursery, toddler rooms, larger restrooms, lobby, and expansion of the existing cafe. The objective given to KHID by the campaign building committee was to bring in fresh new finishes, textures, and furniture that would create a welcoming environment for its members and visitors alike. Utilizing a careful selection process to incorporate calming neutrals, bold warm and cool hues, luxury vinyl planks, porcelain tile, and a mix of patterned carpet tiles, the space began to come alive. We also chose hand-picked fabrics on unique furniture and stylized light fixtures to round out the design. The eventual result was the formation of a modern and comfortable environment to help them achieve their mission: to connect people with Jesus Christ and one another.


A local women's medical care provider receives a new identity.


Findlay Women's Care and Med Spa has been a trusted provider of obstetrics, gynecology, and midwifery for over a decade. As is the case with any facility, the medical professionals there consider it an honor and privilege to serve their patients, and take the matter of patient comfort very serious. We were delighted to provide design services for the recent renovations conducted at their facility. 

Our goal was to provide a comprehensive design solution that would put patient care and comfort in front of all other considerations. This means not only the women who receive care, but also the children of families who pass through their doors as well. The result is a bright, comfortable space for patients and their families to visit for their healthcare needs.
