Experience

Khash graduated from the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow, with a Bachelor of Architecture Honours Degree and Diploma in 2000 where he enjoyed the student-centred and progressive learning approach. After graduating Khash worked in various practices in London, increasingly involved in high quality conversion projects of existing listed buildings.

Khash joined Formation Architects in 2008 and took a lead role within a large team to design and deliver the restoration of a Grade II* listed building on Park Lane. The property was restored to create a single-family house, from a former corporate headquarters. He was responsible for the detail design and setting out packages, co-ordinating with the interior designers, engineers and various sub-contractors.

His most recent projects include the luxury residential development at The Glebe, in Chelsea. A high-profile project he has led from 2012. He has since taken on the lead role on two additional major projects including a Grade I listed private residence and an extensive ‘Super Prime’ multi-unit scheme, both in Mayfair.

Having spent most of his career on sensitive and often complex conversions of high-end, residential schemes and collaborating with some of the world’s most renowned interior designers and highly skilled crafts people, he has developed a sharp eye for detail and has exemplary skills at manoeuvring the often complex challenges these projects can bring. He particularly thrives on the more practical elements of the technical delivery packages and finding the most sensitive and rational solutions.

Reflective of the way he his career has progressed at Formation Architects, he is passionate about creating an inclusive and supportive team culture, one that inspires and fosters a nurturing environment for his team to grow and bring out their best. Khash was promoted to the Board in December 2018.

He spends his precious spare time with his young family.
