CoberKoeda

May Poon is the Founder and Principal at CoberKoeda, a new creative design firm based in Dallas, Texas. She was previously an Associate Principal and Design Director at Wilson Associates in Dallas for 13 years before starting her own design studio with long-time creative collaborator, Liza Koeda. They collectively have a portfolio of highly awarded and successful properties across the globe. Her unique cultural ties to multiple countries and cultures give her a broad understanding and empathy toward a vast international client base.

Having been interested in art and design since a very early age, she studied architecture and worked in London, England for 8 years before moving to Dallas, Texas. With a background in architecture, she keeps a strong focus on the spatial form of buildings and how they created communities, cities, and urban and suburban environments, and similarly while practicing interior architecture. Everything is designed with an intention. It begins with the story, the concept, spaces, and finally the interior architecture. The aesthetics and feeling fall into place when there is a strong story. She sees herself as a story-teller and creator of design. It is important to build a strong and solid foundation with every client, in order to understand them deeply. A project is a journey with the client, and to come together to develop a strong concept and ultimately a successful project. 

Let’s create AMAZING together!
