Workflow “The computer is just a servant, my pencil calls the shots�

Though the complexity of several of the projects in this portfolio might suggest that I design everything from behind the screen, I rather develop the initial concepts with sketches on pen and paper. Digital tools are only useful to save time on repetitive tasks and add a new level of accuracy to the initial concept. Therefore. computer code is only used to test my ideas, generate alternatives and gain insight in complex environments. It is up to the architect to pick the fitting direction of the project and manually shape the results to his own will. Digital tools should only take over the mundane tasks to grant me more time for concept development.

Architecture Projects Design and computer code go hand in hand

Every basic unit contains an installation shaft, which makes it easier to change the layout of the wet rooms in the residence.
