I work at Mei because I find the wide range of assignments, with a focus on re-use and transformation of the existing, very challenging.
My favorite building is the museum Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, by Heatherwick Studio. I haven’t seen it with my own eyes yet, but the way in which the hidden qualities of this raw silo complex are exposed with a few ‘simple’ interventions, is very inspiring.
I am proud of the transformation projects that I have realized so far, including the Lumière Cinema Film house in the old power plant of the Sphinx in Maastricht, and the transformation of the former Timmerfabriek of Wiltion Fijenoord in Schiedam which won the National Renovation Award – Gulden Feniks 2016.
