HIGHLANDS, NC, May 23, 2024 – On Thursday, June 6 the Highlands Chamber of Commerce will host a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony at MHK Architecture. The event is free and open to the public and will take place at 4:30pm at 1152 North 4th Street, Highlands. 

MHK Architecture believes the human relationship is central to the practice of architecture. Their goal is to help successful and visionary people build their dream home with a process more enjoyable than they ever thought it could be. They are committed to the historic craft and practice of architecture, yet always driven by and responsive to the wishes of the client. With nine offices ranging from Florida to the Carolinas to Colorado, our Highlands team offers a small, boutique service within the larger umbrella of MHK.

Highlands has become a second home to MHK’s owner and founder Matthew Kragh, whose family bought a home on Lake Glenville after first visiting in spring of 2020. Matthew’s love for the area inspired him to establish an office here nearly six years ago, bringing architect Brandy Long on as Director in 2021. Additional team members, Keith Gilbert, Senior Architectural Associate and staff members Lydia Lehman, Architect, and Seth Forrester, Assistant Architectural Associate, are honored to help create beautiful homes in such a stunning environment.

“We are pleased to welcome MHK Architecture to Highlands,” said Kay McHan, executive director of the Highlands Chamber of Commerce/Visit Highlands, NC. “With their innovative designs and commitment to excellence, MHK will significantly contribute to our community's thoughtful growth and curated development.”

Parking is limited for this event so please plan to carpool. Food and beverages will be served.
