Founded in 2010, the award winning SUBU Design Architecture is a full service architecture and interior design practice founded by May Sung, AIA, LEED AP. Since its inception, the firm has developed a reputation of collaborative design. In addition to private custom residences and high profile commercial projects, SUBU Design Architecture has completed multiple hotel and residential projects in the greater Los Angeles area, South Bay, Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, and Aspen, CO.

As the principal of SUBU Design Architecture, May Sung enjoys the process of working with families, corporations, and individuals to create their dream space. Through her travels, she also understands that there is not a singular aesthetic voice. She strives to bring out the narratives from the Client in order to create a space that will tell the Client’s story, integrating architecture and interior.

She received her Bachelor of Art with honors from the Department of Architecture, University of California, Berkeley and Master of Architecture from the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University. May was also named Fulbright Fellow to Hong Kong SAR upon graduation.

Since Hong Kong, she has lived and worked extensively in the Greater Los Angeles Area. Her work in preservation has been recognized by the City of Palm Springs. Her architectural and interior design work has appeared in national and international publications alongside internet design outlets such as Luxury, Vogue, Elle Decor, Glocal, Dering Hall, Domino, Houzz and featured on the covers of LUXE and Southbay Homes.
