skimA /ˈskiː.mə/ refers to ‘schema’; the word comes from the Greek word "σχήμα" (skhēma) which means shape, or more generally, plan.
skimA was founded by Sejin Kim upon his return to Korea in 2014 in order to explore how design is able to respond to the challenges of building low-energy and integrate sustainable environmental architecture as well as structural design as a methodology into the architectural design process. Through the process, skimA aims to create inspirational buildings that efficiently function and well respond to environment. skimA provides architectural design and consulting services leading to spatial solutions for design environments, brand, identity, exhibition/installation, interiors, exteriors & buildings for new construction or refurbishment.
