KIRSTI L. WOLFE
I have been in this business for 27 years. After receiving my Masters of Science in Architecture at Cal Poly (SLO town), I moved to San Francisco for 6 years. I had a great experience, but knew I wanted to start my own business and there was no better place than Bend, Oregon. I grew up vacationing in Sun River and loved this area since a very young age. Who can say they live where they vacationed all of their life? It is Amazing here. My business has continuously grown over the last 12 years being in Bend. I have branched out from Residential Design into Contract and Hospitality designs over the last 5 years and really enjoying all projects.
My dog, Playa, is well known at the office and on job sites or pretty much anywhere we go. She is a rescue dog, but the fact is that she rescued me.

Playa Wolfe has been a part of the KWD design team almost 9 years. She will, usually, greet you with a large bark (coming from a little Lab.) but as soon as you come into the office she will retrieve a toy to give you, especially if you are known to bring her treats. Don’t leave your bag or purse on the floor she will investigate your belongings to make sure there is something for her in there. Playa will capture your heart and love you forever.
