Kathryn Hampton and Susanne Molina Form K2S studio
Los Angeles-based interior design firm to focus on financial, technology, entertainment, retail, and academic sectors
Recognizing the need for client-focused, hands-on, senior-level project leadership, Kathryn Hampton and Susanne Molina recently established K2S studio, a Los Angeles-based interior design firm serving the financial, technology, entertainment, retail, and academic sectors.
“Kathryn and I are delighted to open K2S studio here in the burgeoning and vibrant downtown LA arts district,” said Ms. Molina. “And we’re looking forward to combining our large firm experience with small firm personal attention to continue to create smart, creative and inspiring spaces for our clients.”
K2S studio offers more than 60 years of combined experience in providing award winning design solutions and in-depth knowledge of construction methods and project management. The firm has relationships with many clients that span several years and multiple projects.
“Susanne and I formed K2S studio in order to provide smart, creative solutions for the ever-changing workplace. We believe a successful project with a satisfied client is the result of personal attention and dedicated service provided by an experienced and cross-trained team of design professionals,” said Ms. Hampton. “We approach every project as an opportunity for a long-term relationship, rather than a singular event, and believe firmly that dedicated principal involvement throughout the course of the project will lead to a successful result and satisfied client.”
