As an Architect and Engineer I offer all kind of services. An architect is in some form a space doctor a space technician. From helping with designing spaces and buildings, helping to provide construction information as well as doing site inspections. Less known to the public is using an Architect as a consultant to make decisions prior buying a house, make a building more warm, dry and healthy, saving money, creating more value or overcome technical issues. At the centre of my understanding of architecture is the human the inhabitant and user. In principle any building is a further skin, a shell, to protect us as inhabitants/users from the outside elements, to keep us dry and warm and safe. To feel comfortable in a space we as humans need also light, air, views, different spaces for different functions etc. And the wider aspect of a building, the site, the topography, the setting within a context, the community is also essential for a space. The most successful buildings and spaces are for me those, which make the people using it most comfortable and which are in their functionality most versatile. Those are buildings and spaces, which survive many years, centuries and collect a rich history of stories of its inhabitants and users. To achieve this a building needs to be functional and useful, durable and technical constructed and also beautiful.
