With our firm’s longstanding expertise in designing care environments, MKM is continuously exploring disruptive innovations that can better align community development strategies with public health outcomes. From public libraries and neighborhood redevelopment. to affordable housing and behavioral health, we are focused on providing designs that can mirror community health and well being for people of all ages and abilities.
