Lorissa Kimm

San Francisco's Lorissa Kimm is a phenomenal architect who, while growing up in Tokyo, became interested in architecture after being inspired by the juxtaposition of ancient Shinto shrines and avant-garde modernist buildings. Her designs focus on the purity of forms and clean lines, a love of materials and light, a respect for balance and nature. There is no need for artwork when you have such beautiful architecture and surreal views to please the eye.

I LOVE those first shots of the bedroom. I'd move in in an instant. And I love the wall ensemble with the art and the bench with the pillows beneath!

Very talented! She's really made the most of the amazing views.

I was surprised you said, "There is no need for artwork when you have such beautiful architecture and surreal views to please the eye," because Ms. Kimm's rooms have quite a lot of fine craft and art work!

Just because it doesn't hang on the wall doesn't mean it's not a fascinating object/art. And vice versa. :)

I was surprised to see you say, no need for artwork—the first thing I noticed is the beautiful artwork in every shot. Or am I missing something? As a painter, I am quite sensitive to artwork, and its power, and I suggest they are indeed beautiful interiors, but there is fine art there.

All of the pictures are absolutely gorgeous but the kitchen just knocked my socks off! It is my dream kitchen. Love it.

I really love the wood on the rectangle table. What is it? The chairs are just perfect. Could you tell me who the manufacture is. What a great selection of materials for all the spaces. The shower is beautiful glass pieces? Is it hard to keep clean?
