What's so cool about it?

In 2007, MKSD architects started out with what they described as a rather “indistinctive” office building in South Whitehall Township and transformed it into its new office facilities.

The firm renovated it into two separate and autonomous offices — one for itself and one for a local construction management firm.

Using their design skills, the MKSD team transformed what was a “maze” of offices into an open-plan, collaborative design studio with public, private and task-specific zones. 

A new glass tower with a butterfly roof at the building’s central entrance gives the facade an iconic look. The reception area features custom millwork, project photos, design awards and modern furniture.

A full kitchen where staff take turns serving Friday morning breakfast opens onto a terrace for outdoor lunches and cookouts.

The administrative spaces are designed to allow for open communication with the rest of the studio, or be closed off for private conversations, via full-height moveable wall panels.

An update to the studio was done in 2016 to create more areas for team collaboration and to brighten the office with new lighting. And the work is not done.

Currently, MKSD architects is working on a design for a virtual reality lounge area where clients will be able to put on VR goggles and be immersed in a 3D version of the new space.
