Studio Klimoski Chang Architects (STUDIOKCA) is an award winning, multi-disciplinary firm led by principals Jason Klimoski and Lesley Chang. The group of designers, architects, and artists that make up STUDIOKCA, approach each project holistically, working to create environments that feel simple, connected, and complete. Whether they are designing a residence, a commercial space, an art installation, or a light, they strive to tell a story and create a sense of place that resonates with the end user and the local environment in order to create thoughtful and thought provoking objects and spaces.
