The Hoefer Wysocki Architecture and Perkins+Will Team is excited to announce that we have been awarded the North Campus Corridor Master Plan at Kansas State University. The team will undertake developing a long-range master plan for hundreds of acres, located north of the core campus. In addition, the process will “knit” together the numerous existing plans in a comprehensive manner.
“This is a landmark effort towards implementing a major aspiration of Kansas State University to become a top Public Research University in the nation and build upon the established momentum on campus and in the Manhattan community,” said Brian Hamilton, Hoefer Wysocki’s Director of Planning and Urban Design.
We are excited to officially open the doors at our new office location in the heart of downtown Dallas, Texas! We will be on the fifth floor within the 50-story landmark, Trammell Crow Center. We have worked in the area for many years and are eager to finally be a part of the business community. Within the first week of opening we have already been awarded four projects. Take a virtual tour of our new office here.

There is much more to come from us and for Leawood in the next few years…after all, “We believe in Leawood so much, we took out a 10 year lease,” – Mitch Hoefer, Partner of Hoefer Wysocki Architecture.

This year, our firm participated in two Adopt-a-Family programs for Christmas, and we were able to help two local families in need. Our families were adopted through Operation Breakthrough and the Guadalupe Center. Operation Breakthrough provides for low-income families in KC, most of which are single-parent families headed by working women. The Guadalupe Center focuses on improving the quality of life for Kansas City Latino communities.
This is the fifth year in a row that Hoefer Wysocki has participated in an Adopt-A-Family program. Each year, our goal is to provide every gift on the wish lists, a gift card for the parent (s), and a gift card for a holiday meal for the family.
We are proud to report that once again, we were able to meet our goals this holiday season. Although the families must remain confidential, we hope that they have a great Christmas morning and are sending lots of holiday cheer their way.
