As a designer I am especially interested in building design. I am also inspired by combining new buildings with existing constructions and by restoring the old in contemporary ways. I think quality architecture begins at the details, which is why inspecting and drawing technical details is very close to my heart.
Since 2003 when I started working as a designer I have worked in various architecture offices in various projects of very different scales. I have had the possibility to experience the whole vast field of architecture, and my projects have also been successful in international competitions. The most important projects I have been working with are a private villa in Puumala and a new allotment area together with it’s cottages in Suutarila in Helsinki.
I have previously been working on projects such as the extension of the Pärjänkievari restaurant in Iso-Syöte, a private villa in the Archipelago Sea, housing buildings in Kalasatama in Helsinki and Cygnaeuksenpuisto in Jyväskylä, office building Derby in Espoo and the Kastelli multi-functional building in Oulu.
Lately I have been designing small-scale wooden buildings in the form of private houses and holiday homes. I would like to work with artistic projects and in workshop-like surroundings in the future in addition to working with projects traditionally associated with working as an architect.
I rarely put the pen down even in my free time, but instead I immerse into the world of cartoons and illustration. I take care of myself by running, yoga and swimming, and I keep my mind sharp by meditating every morning.
