Penthouse on the Park
Susan Knof is the Director of KNOF design specialising in the interior design, decoration and styling of luxury high-end residential projects. The American-born designer started her boutique design practice in 2012. Having both lived and worked in New York, Sydney and London, her designs evoke a sophisticated and cosmopolitan style. For inspiration, Susan looks to travel, music, fashion, jewellery, literature and architecture and loves both the vibrant pace of city life and culture and the calm of natural landscapes. She is a great believer in the transformative power of colour and its ability to create or enhance the mood of a given space for its end users. Susan studied design and graduated with honors from Miami University and textiles and photography at the University of New South Wales. She then went on to work as an Interior Designer for practices such as Gensler and SOSH Architects in New York. In 2007 she re-located to London to work with multi-award winning practice SHH. She is also LEED-accredited (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and took time out early in her career to work on projects for the 'Habitat for Humanity International' in mainland America and in Hawaii. Project work in Susan' s portolfio has ranged from leisure centres, offices, casinos and hotels, but luxury housing has always been a major focus. Susan has worked on interiors for London townhouses, Moscow villas and Lisbon penthouses in a variety of styles, from classic, modernist, and minimalist to maximalist, but always with the extraordinary level of finishes and bespoke solutions that characterises her detailed and thorough work in this market.
