  • Uusimaa
  • Competent

I specialize in office projects and workplace development. My main responsibilities as a design lead & interior architect are to lead projects through to delivery, and to mentor team members while advocating design thinking in all directions. Other tasks beside overseeing day-to-day operations in close cooperation with the design team, project managers and construction site include creating new supplier connections, research on industry changes and technical development of the design tools. In addition, I have strong expertise in designing private homes. In total, I have over nine years of diverse experience in interior architecture.

As a designer I believe that our design choices should reflect and present our values. Design should speak about a private owner’s or company’s innermost beliefs and share their values. Creating with this mindset every design has a fresh dialogue that explores aspects of the historical, socio-cultural and physical facets. The interplay between the past and this moment is what makes a design intriguing and thought-provoking.

I am driven by curiosity and the desire to create functional yet aesthetic and inspiring spaces with environmentally and socially sustainable values at the core. I am an advocate for biophilic and sustainable choices, and I hope to use this to create healthier spaces and promote these values through my work.
