Junghee Kim holds a Master’s degree in Interior Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in the US. She has experience working in both residential and commercial Interior Design firms in the Greater Toronto Area and is also a professor of kitchen and bathroom design and renovation at Sheridan College. Junghee is a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). As a lead designer at STUDIO KIMI, she manages the design process, including programming (client profiling, research, and site visits), schematic design (ideation and concept development), and design development (preliminary to final design).
Junghee believes that the design of a building and interior space can reflect the people who occupy it, and that these spaces can impact their well-being by accommodating their functional and aesthetic needs. She strives to fully understand her clients’ lifestyles and requirements in order to create interior spaces that enhance their interactions with the surrounding environment.
“We moved into our newly constructed apartment in October 2020. Kookdo and his team did an excellent job in helping us to design and furnish our place from concept/design development to choosing of furnitures within our budget. Virtual meetings were held to review detail drawings and to receive our feedback. They also acted as General Contractor to ensure all internal millwork construction, painting of the apartment and electrical issues were completed on a timely basis without delay. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional concept designer..”
