Kun Lim Architect was founded in 2000 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, whereas Kun Lim Studio LLC was set up in Seattle, USA in 2013. Both offices work together as one to provide architectural services over a wide range of building types such as sports complex, university, hospital, condominium, shopping mall, corporate office and industrial buildings, as well as professional services in the related disciplines of town planning, urban design and interior design.
Our primary concerns are understanding the needs of our clients and helping them articulate their requirements. In our work, undivided attention is given to details and major considerations that are project specific. This ranges from optimization of land use to climatic response, relationship with the environment and context, integration with nature and landscape, and co-ordination with structural systems and other building services.
Our works are featured regularly in both architectural and mainstream media, including TV. Some of our projects are winners of architectural design awards and competitions.
The “practice” is headed by brothers K S Lim, a Bachelor of Architecture graduate from University of Melbourne, and Kun Lim, a Bachelor of Architecture graduate from University of Houston.
