Kimberly Zisler Friedberg
A true definition of a ‘designer,’ Kimberly came to SA+R following a long, successful career in fashion as a shoe designer. Working for several years based in the coastal centers of Los Angeles and New York, traveling frequently to manufacturing hubs in China and Europe, Kimberly led and served on design teams for such well-known brands as Simply Vera, Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez, and Charles David. Ultimately moving to Denver to establish a more balanced lifestyle, she chose to pursue a long-lost interest in architectural design and shift gears with her creative pursuits.
While earning her master’s degree at the University of Colorado at Denver, Kimberly joined our firm in 2018 first as an intern and then as a full-time teammate. Her passion for the production and putting together of designs has since translated seamlessly from the factories to the construction site. Through her architectural work Kimberly is able to utilize both her strong design eye and detail orientation in the creating of skyline-changing buildings around Denver’s Front Range and beyond. Since joining our team, Kimberly has been involved with the 10th& Acoma multifamily housing development along with several other conceptual-phase projects and project proposals. She was also the Team Captain for SA+R’s 2019 IIDA Pret a Porter fashion show entry, winner of the Best of Show award.
