RKA Designs Fleming Falls Preserve - Observation Deck

RKA is pleased to be the architect for the Fleming Falls Preserve-Observation Deck at the former Camp Mowana site in Mansfield. Unfortunately the camp recently closed, but now this beautiful site will become a nature preserve. RKA is working with a dedicated group of former Camp Mowana staff members, and Richland County Park District, to create a lasting tribute to the Oneida Lodge, originally known as the Fleming Inn. The RKA design will re-create the lodge veranda, tell the story of the rich history of the site and Camp Mowana, and serve as a gateway into the nature preserve.

RKA Leads 'Circus House' Restoration

RKA is excited to help lead the restoration and renovation of Columbus' historic 'Circus House' in Victorian Village! The ‘Circus House’ was designed by renowned architect Frank Packard in 1894 for circus magnate Peter Sells and his family. Over the last 125 years, the building has been home to many families, a lodge, and a daycare, and now will be restored to a single-family residence (Photos illustrate the existing conditions).

RKA is working with the new owners and a talented team of workers to ensure that the residence is restored in an appropriate manner to match its former prominence and craftsmanship. RKA presented preliminary plans for the proposed renovation to the Victorian Village Commission and received approval for the project. Our team looks forward to continuing our work on the restoration of this iconic Columbus historic landmark.
