Kenneth Ussenko formed the design firm KU Productions in 1999 with the focus of his work in the film industry. His talents quickly expanded into industrial design, branding & packaging and then finally crossed into conceptual design for architectural environments. In 2007 Kenneth was hired by Nestle Corporation to design the packaging and branding of a new innovative healthcare beverage the company was developing. Nestle’s “GLOWELLE” product was a huge success and the packaging got media acclaim worldwide. Soon after Kenneth Ussenko Design was formed to mainly focus on the development and designs of commercial environments and residences.
By 2012 Kenneth Ussenko had designed 12 restaurants in California and 2 in Qatar; office building for Klune Industries, an aerospace company; shopping mall in Laguna Niguel and several estate homes. KU Productions immediately broadened the vision and clientele to an international scale because of its versatile design capabilities. Most recently Kenneth was commissioned to design the palace for Prince (Sheikh) Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani and Princess Maha, royal family members of Qatar.
Presently Kenneth Ussenko is the architectural designer of a large resort and residence community in Cental America. Situated on 5,300 acres of palm-strewn beaches, sub-tropical savannah and Belizean jungle long the Southern coast of Belize, lies the only gated residential, golf and resort development of it’s kind. Kanantik Belize is an active, eco-friendly community offering over 2,800 residential homesites uniquely dispersed throughout four neighborhoods, namely the Coastal Estates, Savannah Estates, Golf Estates and Foothill Estates.
“I usually work with an open brief, although the lead might come from the client in terms of what the objectives are for each environment and how they want to experience their commercial or residential space. Balancing imagination and analysis is an important process of every design project I take on. The journey of developing and selecting the right design identity for each project requires a series of design studies starting from sketch reviews to 3D modeling. The combination of calculated design exercises over the years and regular production projects has enabled my team and I to fine-tune our approach and execution.”
Constructing the complete experience for any environment is a passion of mine. Texture, color, light and emotion are the essential ingredients to any design project and with these elements you can orchestrate an atmosphere full of beauty and style to enhance all your senses.
