Interview with Joost
Hi Joost, how do you like working at Mei?
It is nice to work in such a young and international team. We work on lots of different types of projects which makes every day interesting. Our work varies from transformation projects to completely new buildings on different scale levels. Some projects are small and local while others are much bigger and located abroad.
What Mei project are you most proud of?
Definitely the Silk Factory in Naro-Fominsk in Russia. We were specifically approached as European experts regarding architectural re-use and transformation design. It is not common in Russia to re-use existing buildings, so with the design for the Silk Factory we show them how they could deal with industrial heritage. I am proud of the fact we were asked
What is typically ‘Mei’?
We design tough and robust buildings, which are durable and can withstand a lot. We also aim to connect our design at multiple scale levels, on the urban level, but also on the level in which your nose is on top of it.
project architect - a week at Mei
You start the week on Monday morning with the weekly planning. You will work on multiple projects this week. For a transformation project, you schedule a scrum session with the internal design team on Tuesday to solve an important design issue. For another project, you are in consultation with the implementing parties on the construction site about the aesthetic supervision. To arrange a smooth process for a building permit request for a new project, you have an appointment with the municipality on Wednesday. Sometimes you go out alone, sometimes you accompany a senior architect. You lead a team of junior architects to make several design studies. In the meantime you consult the PR team about the publication of a project that you have contributed to. Dynamic working days, but you also enjoy some rest during the daily fresh, joint lunch. At the end of the week you made significant progress in your projects, and together with the client, you made an important decision. Maybe this is a good time to have a drink with your colleagues or play a game of table football.
