Karen Wong has always been a very organized person and appreciates how challenges offer the opportunity to uncover innovative design. Much like piecing a puzzle together, she appreciates the satisfaction of seeing how different elements in a space can be made to fit perfectly as a whole with a clear vision and a little patience. Practicing patience and calm isn’t new to Karen. When she’s not working, she teaches yoga and she values how stepping away from a challenging situation and taking a breath can bring an inspiring perspective, clarity and focused direction.
When working with her clients and within her team, Karen collaborates closely to explore possibilities and better understand not only what can create ideal physical spaces, but also the best experiences. As Karen’s portfolio continues to grow through her contribution to global projects, she embraces the challenges that arise from working in different locations and cultural contexts to continuously spark innovative ideas.
When you think something’s maybe impossible, that’s when you’re on to something.
