age eight, Marcia K's creative mind in the field of art
was already exploring. With New York City as her canvas,
the young artisan began painting and designing. Not satisfied
with just a traditional art education, she sought out and
studied under Italian Master Toto Tamburino for many years.
Later, she continued her quest at the Interior and Architectural
Design School of the University of Pennsylvania.

type of client works best with you?
Where there is a meeting of the minds, the results are magical.

have many International clients. What types of designing
have you done for them?
German client, while in Berlin, called to consult with me
to place marble floors throughout the entire apartment,
and reconstruct his bathrooms. After meeting and seeing
my architectural plans, he hired me to do his whole apartment,
including raising ceilings, installing modern controlled
lighting and audio systems, the marble flooring, and selecting
furniture. He didn't return to see the renovation until
it was complete, and was thrilled with the results."

was your most unusual client?
"During my NY
career, I was introduced to an Indian Raja, who resided
in Hong Kong. He mailed me architectural plans for the mega-mansion
he was planning to build. He then flew to New York to consult
with me about the designing, and to purchase unusual elements
for this home. I created a marble and stone floor that resembled
a curving Hollywood style dance floor. It swept you from
the house to the pool, which featured lighted glass figures
around its perimeter. Another unique plan of the four story
residence was that it was designed with ramps instead of
steps. I selected the modern lighting system in the LR and
DR, that was constructed in various levels of design, and
were timed to go on at all different intervals. This
home was so innovative that my clients today are still amazed
at the intricacy of the plans."
do you visualize the new concept for a home?
"Not too many people can immediately enter
a room, and visualize many new ideas that are not necessarily
in the scope of a person's imagination
. I do not just
arrange furniture, and pictures on the wall. I create a
stylistic environment, so that when people enter your home,
they say that they have never seen anything like this before."
