Design Philosophy

Most human beings are natural designers. I take advantage of this fact by working collaboratively with my clients, whom I consider the experts in determining what they need in their living spaces. My design sensibilities are flexible, and my focus is on translating each client's unique vision into documents that their builder can easily utilize to build the house the client wants.

I tend to work in a less formal way than most architects, both from personal preference and because I find it yields better results for the residential projects in which I specialize. I also keep my fees at a level that allows me to work with the average homeowner, because those are the types of projects I most enjoy. 

As of January 2021, I am not taking on any new work. Please contact Nana Kim at 9Square Studio. I appreciate your interest and wish you best of luck with your project.
