The Entry of the Phinizy House features an original Tiffany Chandelier, decorative fireplace mantle featuring lion heads, intricately detailed grand stair, and decorative columns that resemble engine pistons (to pay homage to the original Owner – Georgia Railroad Bank President Jacob Phinizy). To revive the space to its former glory, we restored the original plaster walls and parquet flooring. We are now proud to welcome Clients and Vendors through our grand Entry! #historicrestoration #2KMarchitects
Construction is set to begin soon on a Bank Operations Center. Follow along the next few months to see the progress! #dronephotography #newconstruction
We are adding 12 classrooms to Euchee Creek Elementary in order to get students out of portables and into the Main Building. The additions follow the character of what’s existing, with updated finishes and lighting. #educationarchitecture #addition #construction #dronephotography
It’s been 10 years since we moved from our cozy 3,000 SF office on Wrightsboro Rd into our 16,000 SF permanent home at 529 Greene Street. From purchase to move-in, we spent nearly three years designing and renovating the 150-year-old #historic structure to make it usable as a working architectural office. Renovations were two-fold. First, we had to correct years of water damage that arose from a lack of air conditioning and roof leaks. Second, we had to peel back the layers of renovations in order to reveal and highlight the original character defining features of the building. Over the next few months, we will showcase the #renovation #transformation 🛠️
Foundations are under way at an exciting new project - a high-residence on the river! Trust us, you are going to want to keep up with this one! #whataview #highendresidence #residentialarchitecture #2kmarchitects
Another project in the books! This time, we created a new dialysis center within an existing medical prison. This project had its challenges, including providing a space that delivers cutting edge treatment in a safe/ secure environment for caregivers and patients. We are proud to say that it has been well received by the Facility, and it will serve as a baseline for other similar centers in the state going forward! #renovation #healthcarearchitecture
Euchee Creek Elementary School is expanding to accommodate a growing student body. In total, we are adding 12 new classrooms and support spaces. We are at the point in construction where the steel roof structure and CMU walls are mostly installed. Next steps will be installing the roof sheathing and standing seam metal so the building can be “dried in”. #educationarchitecture #construction #2kmarchitects
We are happy to support the Fort Gordon Christmas House and its mission to provide presents to the children of our local active-duty military! Also, shout-out to Jim Thorpe at the Ellefson Transportation Group for leading the charge with collecting donations!
We’ve been enjoying the Holidays and good company a little too much around here! Happy Holidays from all of us, to all of you! 🎄
Here is the original concept for the habitable roof upgrades at the Children's Hospital of Georgia. Staff know the importance that daylight and fresh air have on patient recovery so they are making efforts to allow greater access to both while maintaining patient comfort. #sunshade #healthcarearchitecture #2kmarchitects #rendering
We are working with the Children's Hospital of Georgia to put a canopy sunscreen on their 3rd floor roof deck so that it can be enjoyed by patients, even in the heat of summer. Over the weekend, the steel structure for the canopy was craned into place. Things are starting to take shape! #construction #healthcarearchitecture #2kmarchitects
This past week, high school students from around East Georgia met at the Georgia/ Carolina State Fairgrounds to compete in the Associated General Contractors of Georgia Skills Challenge. As the demand for skilled labor continues to increase with each passing year, we applaud what AGC is doing to train the tradesmen of tomorrow. Going forward, we encourage parents who have children that may be interested to get involved. The future of the building industry depends on it!
Ever wonder what it would be like to virtually fly through physical space? We do that every day with our 3D laser scanning technology! The scanner is able to capture field conditions completely, so we don’t have to make repeat trips to the job site. When we aren’t using it for our own benefit, we offer our services to other design professionals and contractors who realize the value of starting a renovation project with accurate plans.
🏆🏆 Grateful for being recognized by @historicaugusta for two Preservation Awards at their annual meeting! The residence at 1006 John's Rd. and the Lucey Craft Laney Museum both contribute to the historic fabric of our community. We have been lucky to work with their Owners to enhance the structures to meet the needs of today. #preservation #historicrehabilitation
Two years ago this month, 2KM started design on the 27,000 SF Classroom Building Addition at Grovetown High School. By combining an expedited design and construction schedule, the building was able to open earlier this year for the start of fall classes. The new building matches the original (2009) in materials and forms, yet the classrooms and lab spaces are updated to support the current curriculum. #newconstruction #design #2kmarchitects
We’d like to shout out one of our company’s seasoned veterans. This month marks Tom Rehder's 20th year with 2KM! In that time, he has served as our subject matter expert on Healthcare Interior design. Fun fact – Tom was the 1st Registered Healthcare Interior Designer in Georgia! We are lucky to have him as part of the team and proud of all he has accomplished in his T W O D E C A D E S of service. Congrats Tom!
We are looking for talent to join the team! At 2KM, we provide the opportunity for professional development through exposure to all aspects of design from conception to closeout. Looking for focused individuals who are eager to learn. For more details, DM or email [email protected] #wearehiring #architect #draftsman #designer #constructionadministration

Progress continues on two buildings for the GA Dept. of Veterans Services. The first is a Production Kitchen and the second is a Rehabilitation Facility aimed at reacclimating veterans to civilian life after they've served. We aim to finish up these two buildings soon so they can start serving the men and women who sacrifice for us daily. #thankyouforyourservice #architecture #newconstruction

Here is a view from inside the future Linear Accelerator Vault at GRTC. Thick, poured-in-place concrete walls are used to keep the machine's radiation from escaping the room. The wooden framing on the floor is being used to create a form for the concrete base that will eventually support the equipment. This is one highly complex room! #healthcarearchitecture #renovation #augustauniversity
This video illustrates the new expansion/ addition to GRTC Augusta. The project will expand and update the treatment areas for patients receiving radiation therapy. 2KM is proud to be lending our expertise to this complex project! #visualization #flythrough Augusta University Health
🚨🚨 Another project under construction! Check out the concrete and steel installation underway at the GA Radiation Therapy Center. 🎬&⚒ by Allen+Batchelor Construction
25 years ago this month, Dan King and Rob Mauldin joined their practices to form 2KM Architects. The firm’s longevity can be credited to those exceptional Clients who’ve push us to create our best work and then brought us back for repeat business. Although we are proud of the milestone and the work we’ve accomplished so far, we believe we’re just scratching the surface of our potential as we continue to integrate new technologies into the way we deliver architectural solutions. We look forward to the Clients and Project that jump on board for the ride to the next 25! #architecturalservices #25yearanniversary #feelingthankful
This virtual tour highlights the Surgical side of the Augusta Plastic Surgery Building we completed a few years ago. Awesome video 👏👏👏
This short video shows the process we go through with our design projects. First, we use our #3dscanner to document existing site conditions. Next, we use the #pointcloud generated by the scanner to help create the basic Revit model. Lastly, we apply materials to all surfaces using rendering software to make the scene appear hyper realistic. This beautiful historic home in the Summerville Neighborhood is just one of the many examples that show off our #process #historicbuilding #technology
