“The objective is to get many of the rewards of life from the work you do.” – Charles Eames
NCARB, LEED AP BD+C, Senior Designer
Kim is a proud Texan who grew up in Plano, and she didn’t need to move far to study her passion – architecture. After graduating with a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas Austin, where she was the 2009 recipient of the Henry Adams Medal of Honor, Kim moved to New Orleans and worked for 2014 AIA Firm of The Year Eskew+Dumez+Ripple.
Kim has only ever worked in the architectural field, and she has done everything there is to do in an architecture firm – answered phones, scanned documents, taken out the trash, cleaned the toilets, plus, of course, designed numerous projects. Along the way she has learned that being a good person is very much like being a good architect: remain true to your values but always be a gracious host.
Now at BASILE as a licensed architect in California and Louisiana, Kim facilitates stellar design, ensures quality construction documents, and manages many of Basile’s projects. And only occasionally takes out the trash.
Best part of being at BASILE:
We are getting back to the master builder format from the Renaissance, rather than the segregated design/bid/build process of today’s architectural profession.
