Broad Street Design Studio is led by R. Kimberley Bruckmann. Kimberley received a Master of Architecture from Tulane University and a Bachelor of Art in Architectural Studies from Rice University. Kimberley began her design career in New Orleans working in an interiors firm and sourcing modern art abroad. Kimberley has earned additional decorative art and art business studies certificates from Sotheby’s Institute, UK. After graduate school, she worked in architecture design firms for 12 years.

In 2020, my family marked new beginnings with my oldest daughter off to college. To be closer to family and oceanside, I moved my firm to Charleston, South Carolina. My new design studio is located in the downtown historic district of Charles Town and respectively, my firm became “Broad Street Design Studio.” Broad Street Design Studio continues to design spaces for the enjoyment of Art.
