Kimberly Neuhaus, AIA


Kimberly joined The Brooklyn Studio in 2024 after twenty-six years as the principal of Neuhaus Design Architecture PC, an award-winning small Brooklyn firm.

Kim believes that architecture is by nature a collaborative process, bringing the client’s needs and desires together with the architect’s vision and knowledge and the builders experience and craftsmanship to realize something new and wonderful.

A Texan who fell in love with NYC on a childhood vacation, Kim moved North to attend Columbia where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies followed by a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania.

She began her career in New York working for Buttrick White & Burtis, and then moved on to Baxt Associates where she was introduced to both Brooklyn and the intrinsic adaptability of the urban rowhouse.

She is a member of AIA Brooklyn and the founder of its Custom Residential Architects Network committee. When not working, she enjoys spending time with friends and family and dinghy sailing on Jamaica Bay.
