Architecture is omnipresent and forms a basic module in our society. It forms spaces in which we move and allows us to be in constant communication with them – consciously as well as unconsciously. I studied architecture in Stuttgart for my bachelor’s degree. 

I spent my time abroad in Madrid, which was a very inspiring and formative time for me. I am a great admirer of southern aesthetics, because the emotional awareness of use of materials, shapes and colors is very different from what I perceive in my everyday life. 

Since January 2022, I have been involved in set design of various film projects. This gave me a completely new insight into interior design and the associated tasks of film. 

I am interested in the connection between human and space. I want to take a closer look at how they react to each other, influence each other or how they do the exact opposite and exist completely independently of each other.
