We are constantly thinking, diagramming, debating…
As architects, designers, consultants and healthcare activists, MKM sees itself as a think tank – empowering staff and collaborating with clients to seek out and develop innovative strategies across the care continuum. Our team is full of creative, curious, passionate people. We are makers, artists, techies, poets, researchers, inventors, problem solvers, data geeks, daredevils, and philosophers in our industry’s booming creative culture who wholeheartedly believe that good design can make the world a better place.
Every few months we shut down our downtown office to host a public event we affectionately call the Fishbowl. It's an afternoon where we invite some of our closest and most interesting friends to reflect on their careers, share their work, and discuss their ideas. With topics ranging from technology to toilet paper, the Fishbowl is intended to provide an intimate venue to talk, share, and learn about innovations in community health and well-being. But most of all, its allows us to grow as designers together.
Over our thirty-year history, MKM has received numerous awards. From projects ranging from historic preservation to sustainability (MKM completed the first LEED Platinum building in the state of Indiana), our approach has allowed us to produce award-winning projects for over three decades. In 2018, MKM was named one of the Top 100 Healthcare Architectural Firms in the United States by Modern Healthcare magazine for the thirteenth consecutive year. MKM is one of only three Indiana-based firms named to this prestigious national list.

MKM BSU Scholarship
For many years, MKM has demonstrated our commitment to higher education in a variety of areas. With our entire leadership team consisting of graduates of Ball State University’s (BSU) College of Architecture and Planning (CAP), MKM established CAP’s first formally endowed scholarship – awarding top students at an annual capstone design competition on campus. The scholarship is intended to recognize and foster students who have demonstrated a talent for design and share our passion for architecture.
