architecture & building technology

This is me

I never really wanted to be an architect. At least, that is what I thought when I started my Bachelor six years ago. I didn’t want to be the architect dreaming up concepts and sketchy images, and then moving on. I wanted to know how to make buildings, how they would work in real life. I’ve always been interested in technology and design, in the environment, the landscape.


I want to design with the user in mind, with respect for the surroundings. I love the interplay between old and new, the conflicts and the synergy it creates. I want to make things that are good to the environment, not just because we have to, but because I think we need to. This is what architecture means to me, and this is why I’m combining it with Building technology in my graduation.


Next to studying I love to travel, and I like taking pictures. To look through the lens and frame the outside world. To get new and unexpected perspectives. Have a look on my site, and let me know what you think.
