Kay, a LEED-certified and licensed architect in the State of Colorado, brings over 15 years of experience in both new-build and renovation projects. Kay has managed projects of various types and sizes including single-family and multi-family residential projects, large-scale mixed-use projects, and hospitality projects.
Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Kay first came to the U.S. to study Mathematics and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from CU Boulder and later earned a Master of Architecture degree from UCD. Kay has also been a lifelong student of music and is an accomplished classical pianist. Kay’s ability to nimbly shift between her left (logical and analytical) and right (artistic and creative) brain enables her to create beautiful space with precisely calculated reasoning and function. To further her design inspiration, Kay strives to know each of her clients on a personal level and understand their vision along with the unique relationship between the project and its surroundings.
Kay has two grown kids who are actively pursuing careers in music and film. She enjoys paddle boarding, camping, and skiing with her husband; and running with their two dogs.
