Nice to meet you. I'm Kri.
I believe in travelling extra miles to land in exceptional places.
It's from these outlooks that we find the most interesting perspectives.
The Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts is a land of endless vistas. People come here to play, to explore, and to settle down in a place that itself does not settle. I've never believed man-made spaces should settle, either.
Enter spirited design.
I founded FirehorseWest to bring inventive, concept-driven design to the Berkshires.
I spent the early part of my career in film and theater. The work I did there informs the work I do now in design. It draws deeply upon the tenets of cinema--light, perspective, movement + meaning.
As an editor, I learned the power of cues that get passed along through pattern, balance, and juxtaposition. As choreographer, I told stories through movement and composition. And as a director, I brought the many moving parts of a production together to present a unified narrative with a compelling essence.
Immersive, experiential environments have always been my calling.
And here we are.
