VISION.

My vision for a new building is that it should always add new and positive qualities for users, to the site and surrounding. This happens through careful analysis of the site, the surrounding buildings and the brief. I have an approach where I always see the project’s complexity and challenges as a positive creative force to create something unique for the site and purpose.

PROFILE.

My work spans the spectrum from masterplans through residential to furniture design, experiencing the overall process from conceptual studies up to project execution, including design supervision. At every project stage I team up with partners, experts and users discussing the results of our research and developing the concept, always trying to produce the highest possible level of architectural quality.
