HKS Acquires Maregatti Interiors to form HKS Maregatti Interiors

DALLAS—HKS, a leading national architecture firm with 23 U.S. and international offices, has strategically acquired Maregatti Interiors LLC, a nationally prominent interior design firm, to form HKS Maregatti Interiors.

Maregatti Interiors specializes in interior design for healthcare as well as educational and commercial clients. The firm, founded in 2001, currently operates from offices in Chicago, Ill. and Indianapolis, Ind.

In 2002, Maregatti and HKS staff teamed to complete their first project, working with Indiana University on IU Health West Hospital. The two firms also completed IU Health North Hospital. Today, both firms are completing design and interior architecture services for IU Health Saxony Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children Simon Family Tower at IU Health.

“Our purpose, values and business model are similar—including our responsive service ethic,” says Craig Beale, FAIA, FACHA, FACHE, FAAHC, director of HKS’s healthcare group. “We began working together 10 years ago in Indianapolis. Our staffs specialize in the design of inpatient and outpatient healing environments, crossing a wide spectrum of project type, size and complexity. Merging the two firms will only strengthen our ability to provide best-practice architectural and interior design.”

Maregatti’s distinct national portfolio includes work with IU Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis, Ind.; Ty Cobb Regional Medical Center in Lavonia, Ga.; the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Chicago, Ill.; Lakeland Healthcare in St. Joseph, Mich.; St. Mary’s Good Samaritan in Mount Vernon, Ill.; Saint James Olympia Field in Chicago, Ill.; Indiana University School of Medicine Walther Hall in Indianapolis, Ind.; Swedish Covenant in Chicago, Ill.; and Geneva General Hospital in Geneva, N.Y.

Modern Healthcare has consistently ranked HKS number one in volume of healthcare architecture. The firm’s celebrated healthcare architecture experience includes 1,350 unique projects representing 71,600 beds and 131 million square feet. The firm’s individualized, community-based healthcare facilities have garnered more than 165 design awards.

Ana Pinto-Alexander serves as the principal and director of HKS Maregatti Interiors. She has 25 years of experience designing interiors for the country’s most progressive healthcare facilities. She has spoken internationally on the importance of the built environment in the healing process.

“We are honored to become part of the HKS family,” says Pinto-Alexander. “Our combined staff will offer world-class services, allowing our clients to expand in the local and global economy.”
