krM Architecture+ Receives Distinguished Firm Award

The American Institute of Architects Indiana (AIA) presented krM Architecture+ with the Distinguished Firm Award during its 2016 annual awards on Friday.


The award recognizes an AIA-member firm that has distinguished itself through design and implementation of works of architecture that enhances the quality of our environment, through consistent leadership, vision and ability.


A design studio committed to craft and quality, krM Architecture+ advocates to create solutions to transform communities. Founded in 1978, krM is known for its environmentally responsible design that responds to the needs of educational, healthcare and civic clients.

Recent projects include the Purdue Polytechnic Institute in Anderson, Earlham College Student Commons, Hamilton Heights School Corporation Comprehensive Plan and York Performance Hall & Galleries at Anderson University.


“We’re honored to receive the Distinguished Firm Award, and appreciate our clients who have allowed us to help them design buildings and spaces that enhance their communities and institutions,” said Mike Montgomery, AIA, an owner of the firm and son of the founders, Ken and Shirley Montgomery.


With its headquarters inside the historic Postal Building in Anderson, krM Architecture+ opened a second studio in 2014, in the historic Stutz Business Center near downtown Indianapolis, which has helped the firm to grow both its architecture and interior design practice.


“While our history is full and rich, we believe our best days are yet to come,” Montgomery said. “That optimism comes from the technological advances that we embrace to help us produce more sustainable solutions for our clients.”
