Hi!

Visualisations, brandscaping spaces and developing design narratives are my specialities. I pay particular attention to people's experience and have a great respect for the socio-cultural context of projects.

Tea House

The proposal is to adapt the old building to a tea house with integrated greenhouses for in situ production of tea and herbs. This direct connection between product and consumer aims at reminding people of the way food comes to us. The concept of organising regular venues for local food producers further strengthens the connections between people and land. In addition to the social and cultural benefits, the Tea House will have economic benefit for the Lichtfabriek complex. It will provide regular income for site management and maintenance – similar to the successful analogous Westergasfabriek project. Furthermore, the Tea House will popularise the old industrial area as a new city destination and hopefully will bring more customers for the Lichtfabriek.

Graphics

Visuals and presentations of interior design projects require graphic styling. These are number of examples I created for my projects.

Bookstore

Minimum artificial finishes and sustainable use of materials form the basis of the bookstore design. The `raw` look of place encourages ease and comfort which is further complemented by the lighting. The dark, theatrical ceiling invites feelings of intimacy and curiosity. The big book table display encourages customers to sit and spend more time with a book of their choice which is essential for more sales.

Visitors centre

The design solution for the brief for a tourist information and visitors centre in the city of Plovdiv is based entirely on the cityscape of the town. The interior design is interwoven with classical and rustic features. Furniture and furnishings with clean lines add further a touch of modernity to give more contemporary feel of the setting. Whenever possible the design suggests second hand furniture/furnishings, discarded materials and local custom-made alternatives due to their sustainable nature.

Dissertation

This dissertation aims to investigate how pragmatists' theory of aesthetics can strengthen the conventional design principles of aesthetics. The principles are then applied to three examples of cafés and restaurants within the adapted industrial buildings of former gas factory Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. The aesthetics are reviewed as an experience from the interiors rather than the conventional review of interiors.
