Discover Our Architecture
When we are commissioned for a design and construction project, here at DKMB & Associates, we delve into all possible solutions to produce an appropriate final result. We’re passionate about creating designs that will meet the needs and requirements of our clients. Take a look at three highlighted projects: First, Farmacy Brewery, which allowed us to incorporate the beautiful existing landscape into the overall scheme of the architecture. Second, True Wellness Dispensary, which allowed us to revamp an existing retail stand-alone structure into a medical dispensary, part of the growing cannabis industry in the State of Maryland. Third, Connex Snack Box, which allowed us to transform an old and rusted out shipping container into a productive Break and Rest Area for workers on a large scale utility project.
A Micro Brewery located on a beautiful and fully functional farm in Baltimore County, Maryland. This adaptive reuse project transforms an existing agricultural structure into a Micro Brewery with a Taproom, Brewery Area, ADA Restrooms, and Miscellaneous Spaces. An interesting architectural feature is the inclusion off three (3) Overhead Rolling Sectional Doors, which allow patrons and visitors to experience the dynamic farm setting. When in the area, we encourage you to stop by an experience and enjoy the natural setting. Contact us to learn more about this incredible project.
True Wellness Dispensary
A Cannibas Medical Dispensary located in Aberdeen, Maryland. This stand-alone building project was a conversion of a former retail space. For the change of use, demolition was required for some of the interior wall systems, floor coverings, and door assemblies. On the exterior, the existing window assemblies, existing canopy, and existing signage were all removed. New architectural programming included a Lobby, Reception Area, Waiting Area, Consultation Area, Retail & Sales Area, ADA Restrooms, and additional ancillary spaces. If cannabis is your thing, we encourage to visit this dispensary the next time you are in the Aberdeen area. Contact us to learn more about this interesting project.
Connex Snack Box
An old and unused Shipping Container was converted into a Temporary Building Structure and located in Brandywine, Prince George's County, Maryland. The purpose was to provide a break area in protected from the elements shelter for construction workers on a large multi-year project. Architectural Programming for this completed project included two doors, three windows, FRP ceilings and walls, plywood panel flooring, a self contained heating and cooling unit, multiple vending machines, six light fixtures, and a host of other requirement items. This Temporary Structure provided the workers with their must needed Break Area. Contact us to learn more about this reuse project.
