HDC’s Past and Current Work with MKSK

One of the best parts of our job is the partners we get to work with and learn from. HDC has been working with MKSK  for over a decade. Their team of planners, urban designers, and landscape architects has worked alongside ours to offer services outside our typical scope of work. However, in 2010, HDC was awarded the project to rehabilitate and design a new addition to Stewart Elementary School, which included designing a new drop off entry and transforming a newly acquired parking lot into playing fields. HDC partnered with Kinzelman Kline Goss (KKG), who merged with MSI in the middle of the project to become MKSK. HDC is currently working with MKSK on the design of the new West Case Park, which involves mothballing the historic OSU Sheep Farmhouse and preparing a HABS documentation report. When HDC worked on the historic Taylor Farm property in New Albany, MKSK was next door creating the new Taylor Farm Park, which would encompass the historic farmstead.
