Mita’s is a beautiful 130-seat, 6,000-square-foot restaurant located in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, at the ground floor of the 84.51° building. The atmosphere combines modern, clean architecture with expansive 25-foot windows, bright and colorful Moorish tiles, reclaimed wood floors and warm, inviting fabrics. KLH was brought on board to help improve the shell space for the restaurant and extend the existing type I/II vertical ducts that were installed as part of the overall building (they needed to be extended horizontally into the restaurant space). Initially, the restaurant was to be in another location on the street level of the building. Once moved, KLH adapted to the change, utilizing the concepts and high-level engineering from the original space to the new one. In addition to MEP services and lighting control systems (fixtures selected by another design team member), KLH provided construction administration services for the project and modified the existing sprinkler head layout for the location’s fire protection.
