We design healthy places.
MKM architecture + design (MKM) believes that well-being is essential for communities to thrive. That’s why we are working so hard to improve the culture of health with partners across the care continuum. For over thirty-five years, we have focused on the relationship between design and health. It’s all we think about.
Over the years, we have helped numerous organizations develop innovative models of care that disrupt the status quo and effect sustainable change within the populations they serve. Consistently named as one of the “Top Architecture Firms” in the country by Modern Healthcare, our award-winning practice is led by a team of nationally renowned thought leaders whose expertise spans across the full spectrum of care.
We understand that our job is to help clients design spaces that will house the most significant moments in people’s lives; it's something we take very seriously. And why we are so adamant that each detail is thoughtfully considered and every solution is purposefully designed. From senior living and behavioral health to urgent care and inpatient surgery, we listen to our clients’ needs, think about how the project can be most successfully approached, and create effective solutions focused on their expectations. Our design process is simple: listen, think, create... repeat. It's an iterative methodology that is grounded in empathy, reliant on critical thinking, and fueled by curiosity.
We are not simply responsible for designing healthcare facilities. Our passion lies in considering spaces that promote the health and well-being of people of all ages and abilities. We are in the business of designing meaningful places for everyone.
