Every property, from a tiny apartment to a large building, has its own potential to transform into a contemporary, functional and appealing accommodation. In some cases a few subtle adjustments can be sufficient, other projects need a more fundamental approach. Depending on the objective, the budget and the use of the property, various creative solutions are desired.
Empty or dated buildings and houses inspire me. I’m passionate about finding surprising alternatives and improvements to expose the quality and character of a property. Besides the exploration of the project potential I enjoy furnishing and decorate in multi various styles and I love making layouts for a stylish presentation.
For 20 years I have worked together with my partner in our architecture firm Villasophie. I have created numerous villas, interiors, renovations, residential buildings and resort layouts during these years so I have a vast experience in architectural design. In 2015 I set up my own practice: Atelier Do.
I offer complete project presentations with property analyses and project options. With detailed plans and 3D modeling I reveal the property potential for yourself, a buyer or an investor. I also realise metamorphosis: a total make-over of your house from concept design to actual furnishing.
Since 2009 I live in the south of France, I speak French, English and my native language is Dutch.
