About 

After working for several architecture studios and working freelance on different projects throughout China, I am looking for new opportunities to work as an interior architect for an international company.

I admire different work fields, and cross-overs between different disciplines, such as architecture, interior- and graphic design.

I am experienced in concept development and like to generate ideas. I have worked on several projects throughout China and Europe, including  shops,  offices and several fair booth designs. I have good organizing and social skills, enjoy working together with people and to enthuse them.

Employment 

Studio van der Poort, Rotterdam, NL, Owner, Interior architect

After graduating from the Willem de Kooning Art Academie, I've worked for several architecture offices such as OMA and Van Bergen Kolpa before setting up my own design studio in 2009. I am passionate about creating places where materials and colours, light and shadow, tactility and textures play an important part. These ingredients help form Studio van der Poort’s unique design vision, and have been instrumental in creating and collaborating on graphic and interior design projects in The Netherlands and beyond. My portfolio now boasts a broad variety of residential, office and hospitality projects.
