Portfolio

Objective

I like to focus on both aspects of architecture - early stages "from inception to tender" and a technical approach.

Coming up with some, sometimes really extraordinary ideas, brainstorming, finding solutions to unsolvable problems, simply converting 2-dimensional raw sketches into 3-dimensional solid structures - these are those parts of the job description I admire the most.

Sections drawings, construction details, organising workloads, co-operating with other professionals are the most demanding and challenging yet rewarding parts of the job.

In a few simple words - the more complicated task the more I enjoy it.

My Dream Job - To work on as complex architectural projects as humanly possible!
