I am a Dutch international operating landscape architect based in Ibiza, Spain.
After my Bachelor degree in Industrial Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven, I obtained my Master Degree in Landscape Architecture at the Academie van Bouwkunst in Amsterdam.
In the last 15 years I have been working for international offices as Buro Kiefer (Berlin), Bureau B+B stedebouw en landschapsarchitectuur(Amsterdam) and Michel Desvigne Paysagiste(Paris). In 2016 I started in my own design practice focusing on the interdisciplinary domain of landscape architecture, architecture, arts and design.
My work varies from creating designs and developing spatial concepts and strategies in different landscape or urban contexts, at multiple scales.
An important focus lies on rethinking and improving the quality of the public and private domain in a smart, sustainable and collective way.
From an inquiring and analytic approach I start my projects by reading the landscape and project context. The relation between Man and Space takes a central part in this approach. How do space and man relate, and what is their potential within the assignment?
Time, temporality, transition and transformation are inextricably linked to the profession, but also are an important tool in my work; they are made visible and are carefully designed.
For every project I develop a custom made approach, in order to develop an integral and coherent design. Depending on the project I collaborate with different disciplines, such as architects, agronomical engineers, carpenters, artists, cartographers, botanists, process managers, engineers, light designers and other site-specific local specialists.
I take high importance to supervising the realization of my projects in order to guarantee the quality at the completion of the design as well as satisfaction of my clients.
Besides public, commercial and private commissions I create autonomous work, initiated from personal fascinations or topical issues. This work takes form by doing research, writings, making drawings and doing ephemeral, and sometimes unsolicited, interventions in public space or natural landscapes.
