Sunwoo Kim, Designer

Sunwoo grew up in Seoul, South Korea and moved to the states in 2016 to complete a Master’s degree at Yale University. He joined the Butler Armsden team in the summer of 2018.

Sunwoo believes good design is not about making something pretty or beautiful, but is about the careful consideration of the history, political, and economical background of the client, site, and program.

He is currently working on a project in Portola Valley, which is a courtyard house consisting of five slanted roofs that blend into nature.
