Yoko has worked in the Interior Design field for over 15 years at various design firms. After graduating from college, she went to work for a small architectural firm specializing in Public Facility design working closely with architects resolving space and planning issues. From there, she went on to practice commercial workplace design for high profile clients at a fast-growing architectural firm in Cleveland, where many of the corporate projects she worked on became award-winners. Lastly, after moving to California, she went to work for the world renowned design firm, Gensler, working on large high-end commercial spaces throughout Silicon Valley.
Yoko’s ability to transition from beautifully hand-drawn sketches to computerized 3D sketchup drawings, make her a great addition to the SDS team. Her ability to see three dimensionally leads clients to beautiful, yet practical solutions that unify the architectural components in a seamless architecture-to-interiors approach. Her soft demeanor makes her a pleasure to work, but it’s her ability to create beautifully crafted and well thought details, that make Yoko an integral part of the team.
