ABOUT
An architecture studio
CAHA [kä-hä] is an architectural design studio based in the California Bay Area, founded in 2018 by Casey Ramirez and Hallie Chen. With a core aim of creating contemporary spaces, our studio integrates our diverse backgrounds in design, construction, community development, art and ecology.

Casey Ramirez

is an interdisciplinary practitioner of built and beautiful things. Born and raised on a ranch in the Napa Valley, he later attended Cal Poly SLO and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) where he honed his architectural and creative design skills. After graduating, he gained experience in the design and entitlement of public schools in California, and then with hands-on design/build residential and commercial building in Northern California, rural Idaho, and Philadelphia. In 2014 he returned to the Bay Area, working with a local design/build firm creating stunning residential spaces until founding CAHA with Hallie in 2018. When not designing and working on creating buildings, he can be found making art, experimenting with fermentation and surfing or snowboarding around the continent.

Hallie Chen

was born and raised in San Francisco.  While studying urban planning at UC Berkeley for undergrad, she discovered her interest in architecture as a means to create inspiring social spaces and as tool for progressive community development. After completing a Masters in Architecture from Harvard’s GSD, she spent time in upstate New York exploring the connections between ecology, farming and architecture.  Upon returning to the Bay Area she became an expert in commercial interior and office developments, before branching out to start CAHA. When not at our office or on-site, Hallie is a leader in youth design-build programs, bay area rock action and happens to be a pizza eater extraordinaire.
