Hello

We are Mei!
Very nice, all those breathtaking projects of Mei... But how are things going behind the scenes? What does the office look like and what kind of people produce these remarkable designs? On this page you can take a look into our cool office in our sturdy Schiecentrale building and experience what a day at Mei looks like: designing, scrumming, visiting project sites and enjoying a fresh lunch with the team. We love to work, but we also take time for events, inspiring Mei Talks or a game of table soccer.
Welcome at Mei......We are your friends!

Interview with Andreea

Andreea Nae

Hi Andreea, you have been working at Mei since last summer, how do you like it?
It’s great! Being a foreign architect can be quite a challenge sometimes, but the environment in Mei is very international and people are very open and friendly.  It was very easy to integrate and feel part of the team! For me, the most important thing in a job is the atmosphere and work environment. I like that I have the opportunity to work on a large variety of projects on different scales and learn new things, so it’s hard to get bored. I’m also very happy that I could combine my hobbies with my work by being encouraged to apply my painting and drawing skills to the projects I was working in.

Why did you want to work at Mei?
I came to the first open drinks evening last summer and I really liked the idea of having a casual talk with people working here. I had a good feeling about the office, projects and work environment, so I applied soon after that.

What are you most proud of thus far at Mei?
I am proud I work on high quality projects and while being able to enjoy and learn a lot during the whole process.

How would you describe Mei in three words?
Variety, efficiency, open-mindedness

Behind the scenes:

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.
