Currently, Kolar Design is working on several community design projects in Dublin, Ohio, which is just outside of Columbus, and the renovation of The Ohio State University’s North Campus. They’re also working on projects at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Mercy Health West. Outside of Cincinnati, Kolar Design has projects at Rutgers University, Bowling Green State University and Washington University in St. Louis.
