Kim Porter

Owner, Lead Designer

After 14 years in Los Angeles, Kim returned to Rochester, NY in 2018 with her husband and two daughters. She received her BFA at RIT, her post-baccalaureate education in design and interior architecture at UCLA, and has experience designing beautiful spaces in both commercial and residential settings. She draws much inspiration from the Arts & Crafts movement in Southern California architecture, and if given the chance she’d spend days wandering the halls of the MoMA in New York. Outside of the office Kim enjoys a regular yoga practice, exploring all of the area playgrounds and parks with her kids, hosting brunches at her home whenever there’s an excuse to, and traveling to new places in the U.S. and beyond.
