A meeting with Büro Kif
Büro Kif is an interior design and architectural studio, passionate about creating gorgeous, yet functional, interiors where people love to be. The company started around seven years ago by founder and Creative director Hester Stolk. A few years after she was joined by Mia de Groot, Studio Director, Büro Kif. Hester and Mia both used to live in London and have both been living abroad for a longer period of time. Their international expertise shines through the soul of Büro Kif and the personal experience with various cultures and multi-language communication has always been important to both Hester and Mia.
From conception to completion
Büro Kif offers an interior design service that stretches from conception to completion. No matter if you wish to be advised regarding curtains or kitchens, Büro Kif has got you covered. The company offers the full solution from architectural interior design, including renovations, project management for the full construction process and space planning to decoration and furnishing.
”I would like to see us as the spider in the web! We want to serve anyone who wants to improve their home and make that transformation happen” – Hester Stolk about Büro Kif
Both Hester and Mia are very passionate about the company and the product that they offer their clients. Hester claims that what keeps her inspiration burning is the desire to create projects from scratch and to make, what might seem impossible to others, come through. While Hester has a penchant for giving the interiors an eclectic touch, whilst reflecting on the owners identity, Mia claims to have a strong focus on the psychological part of the process – a lot of effort is geared towards creating an interior that is tailored to the client’s lifestyle.
A wholly hearted business
A majority of Büro Kif’s clients are expats with busy everyday lives and what Büro Kif offers them is their full attention. Buro Kif takes care of everything along the way and strives for the clients lifestyle to be echoed in the interior. A dream for the future steps of Büro Kif’s journey is to establish some kind of shop, with a range of carefully selected interior products.
An international approach
The international background in the studio is something that has put its label on Büro Kif. No one in the office carries with them a certain national heritage, but rather a globalized and internationalized approach towards looking at businesses and brands. As Mia is originally from Sweden, she was a part of the Young Professionals network during her time spent in London. Mia experienced the network of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce to be a good network to be a part of and an easy way to reach out to people. This is also the reason why Büro Kif is a member company of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands today. Both Hester and Mia are looking forward to participating at the events hosted by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in the future and would also like to be contributing with their expertise in a creative way.
