Karen Asprea, who as principal of Whitehall Interiors directed the design and creation of interiors for many of New York’s most successful apartment towers, announced the formation of Karen Asprea Studio (KAS) in New York.
The new company offers a specialized consulting practice focused on project management, design oversight and integration of the design and construction process for residential, retail and commercial projects.
KAS also offers high end interior design services for private residences.
“I had the opportunity to participate many times in the successful realization of design – where synthesis of great ideas, materials, scheduling, workmanship, attention to detail, budgeting and creativity come together to create the most outstanding construction projects,” Karen Asprea said.
“I am excited to establish this consultancy and put my experience and expertise to work on projects that range in size from individual homes up to the largest new office, retail or residential installation. I want to offer a tailored experience to clients who value the design process and help them reap the benefits of a well-executed project.”
Prior to forming KAS, Asprea was a principal at Whitehall Interiors, a company she helped establish as an affiliate of Hill West Architects. In her five years there, she developed and executed interior design plans for more than four million square feet of new residential development, including 91 Leonard in Tribeca, North Park in East Harlem, One Flatbush in Brooklyn and Tower 28 in Long Island City.
“There are many moving pieces to be orchestrated to come together and create a successful project, and I am energized by the goal of delivering success to every client,” Asprea said.
