Since its opening five years ago, Falk’s firm, Falk Architects, has helped shape the Topeka community in various ways. They helped design Redbud Park in the NOTO Arts & Entertainment District, worked on the Townsite properties near Kansas Avenue and S.E. 6th Avenue, and helped erect the illuminated arches in downtown Topeka.

“But we’ve also done lots of office remodels or helping small businesses get into their buildings or code analysis,” Falk said. “So we do all types of work.”

Falk is the latest guest on The Topeka Capital-Journal’s “It’s Your Business” podcast.

“There’s so many opportunities, and I think it’s so rewarding,” Falk said. “If you feel the urge to do it, you should try it. My feeling was if it didn’t work, I could always find another job.”
