At JK Architecture + Engineering, our PLAY studio is focused on places that enrich the lives of the community. We believe that each project we design has a place in its unique community and should respond to its inhabitants and environment. They should also be projects that are inherently fun. These projects are alive and activated by patrons that use them for social gathering, exercise, swimming, and skiing.

Based on the performance of JKAE, I would trust using their team again for future projects and recommend them to others seeking professional architectural services.
