When I was young I was already very passionate about drawing and building things. For me being creative is a way to express myself to the world. Becoming an architect was my dream for as long as I can remember because this way I could make a profession of something I love to do: design buildings. Recently I graduated with honors from the Technical University of Eindhoven with a MSc in Architecture.
In my designs I focus on creating buildings and spaces that fullfil the needs of the user. I like to listen to people and what makes them happy so while designing I always try to imagine being the user and talk to them so I can figure out what their needs are in my buildings. This way my designs don’t just exist out of attractive looking shallow building shells and spaces, but instead every space in the building gets an in depth meaning that fits the use and the desired sensory experience of the user. This makes them pleasant to be in. Also the use of pure and natural materials is something I value in my buildings. I try to use these materials in new creative ways to strengten the sensory and spatial experiences.
