Over the past 16 years MCK has been awarded and acclaimed by the Australian Institute of Architects, the Institute of Interior Designers and the Australian Design Council for our outstanding contributions to Australian architecture. MCK was the recipient of the 2011 AIA NSW Chapter Wilkinson Award for the DPR House.

Several completed projects have been featured in national and international publications including “Next Wave – Emerging Talents in Australian Architecture”.
