About 

In projects where the challenge lies in solving multiple complex issues I’m at my best.  At the start of the design fase I try to get a grip on the problem by researching and understanding its context in order to get an insight at the possibilities. The output of this fase is translated and summarized in a clear unambiguous concept. This forms the basis of a strong spatial design which translates the concept to all scales of the building.

I like working in a varied team of people and disciplines. Tight schedules I consider for granted and working under pressure I don’t experience as a burden. In fact amongst these conditions I'm more alert, incentive and have a capacity for surprise. In my work quality and precision comes first.
