Welcome to my website!

I am an independent architect based in Stuttgart, Germany, serving both private and public-sector clients.

Working extensively in multiculturally staffed, internationally operating environments and traveling widely have brought me a flexibility in perspective that has become an integral part of my personality. In meeting the complex challenges of managing construction projects, dealing simultaneously with clients, civil servants, construction workers and specialist engineers, this enables me to ensure that plans are executed smoothly and successfully. I am happy to provide my architectural services, including liaising with planning authorities and construction companies, to both German and international clients.

My standards of design are high – function, lines, forms, colors, light and materials are specifically tailored to each individual client. Together, these elements form a whole that creates a unique ambiance and lifestyle. As an architect I am trained to take a comprehensive approach, combining technical and practical aspects with artistic considerations throughout my projects. I am passionate about my profession, and look forward to receiving your inquiry:
