Design is second nature to Ken. That paired with a belief in the transformative power of Home for the individual, family, and community gives Ken a passion for his work at Synthesis Design.
Ken’s Bachelor’s Degree from Simon Fraser University provided the foundation for further studies at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design (where he was accepted to the exclusive Industrial Design Program) and the British Columbia Institute of Technology.
Ken’s Fine Arts background, paired with his technical knowledge, gives him the ability to take the lead on both Architectural and Interior Design projects. He is equally comfortable with designing renovations and additions as he is designing millwork, or selecting finishes for an interior space.
Ken was recently part of the team working on 5 show homes that form part of the 550 house (Novie Veshki), residential subdivision project in Moscow, Russia. He was instrumental in the selection, design, and manufacture of furniture for the project, working directly with a furniture manufacturer in Shanghai, China.
Ken has a keen ability to dissect projects from all angles, making him a valuable asset not only to his clients, but also to his colleagues at Synthesis Design.
Ken is one of two Project Managers who leads the design team and liaises with his clients to provide seamless ongoing communication and implementation. Ken also works directly with Principal Curtis Krahn to ensure that the clients original design strategy, project requirements, and needs are realized.
