About Heleen

“Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.” Steve Jobs, founder Apple Inc

I am fascinated by that "digging deeper". How I can make sure that a building is of maximum service to its user, so that optimal performances, maximum comfort or for example, the best possible healing environment is realized.

The question from user and client is the inspiration for me to achieve the spatial translation of their wishes. What influence does a design have on its user and how can it help them. And what impact does a design have on its environment. It is a joint search for designing spaces that suits you as a user perfectly and where functionality and appearance (design!) reinforce each other.
