Kim is a talented designer who finds joy in collaborating with her clients and design team in order to generate meaningful and individualized designs. “Understanding client, site, and natural processes is paradigm,” says Kim, “when the design connects environment, architecture and client personality, that’s when the magic happens; it becomes a positive experience for everyone.”
