Designer and architectural engineering.

Career starting point

The days I spend with my father doing what he did best; being a master carpenter.

Influenced by

Richard Neutra, Morris Lapidus, Geoffrey Bawa, Oscar Niemeyer and David Chipperfield.

Why architecture?

Everything is architecture. Even a tree is architecture, but I can’t build a tree, I can build a house.

Design principles

Clean and clear architecture.

Formula for success

Be adaptive, open for innovations and most important listen to your clients.

Obstacles for the profession

There are no real obstacles but if one crosses your path be adaptive, use your imagination and find a
way around.
