Intermediate Interior Designer

Company Preview: MKDA is a 62-year-old, award-winning architectural and design firm headquartered in New York City with offices in Florida, DC and Connecticut. We are often asked how we are so successful at vying against the bigger names in architecture and winning on significant projects. We think it’s because our history bears us out, but also because many from our local team hail from larger shops, or academia, bringing with them an expansive knowledge and vision alongside MKDA’s innate entrepreneurial drive and passion for delivering individualized attention, highly attuned and tailored design solutions, strong work ethic, and management of budgets and schedules. We also like to think that people enjoy working with us because while we take our work and project outcomes seriously, we value the power of relationships and not taking ourselves too seriously. There are no “starchitects” here, just talented, fun people with a strong work ethic.
