Victorian Village Private Residence Completed

The RKA team is proud of the work that went into this recently completed residential project in the heart of Victorian Village. This complex project includes the restoration and renovation of an 1880’s Victorian Vernacular style home, a 2 ½ story addition, a new detached garage, and a redesigned site. The design solutions, and resulting details, celebrate the contrast between historic and modern, and emphasize the differences, and relationships, between new and old elements.

Cornice Works

For a recent session of Rogers Krajnak Architect’s Mentoring Program, our staff toured Midstate Contractors’ offices and fabrication facilities in Marion, Ohio. We appreciated the insight that Bart Hooper and Tom Kemper provided as we experienced the meticulous care and craftsmanship that Cornice Works (Midstate’s fabrication division) puts into the fabrication of historically accurate architectural elements.  Each of our firms are proud of the work that we do as we provide our expertise for the restoration of our community’s significant historic buildings including churches, courthouses, community buildings, and historic homes.
