We believe that it’s good to know what designer think about his projects and how he creates them from his own words. Journalists and experts writes about these projects on design magazines from their points of view. Both opinions should contribute to one another. This blog is what we do in our part. We write about our projects the way we do and think about them. This is our official (and most complete) web-based information. Don’t look for our website.

hi Jack, can you please contact me? Gilbert van der Lee (a friend of Nanne, we met in october) firstname.lastname@example.org +31641577056.
My name is Manoj and I have seen some of your works and I like them very much. I have a land area around Wong Wien Yai/Taksin which is around 600 sq yards. I want to make it into a parking space. But I do not know which concept design to use. I am on a low budget which I think might move you away from doing this project. I want to use material and stuff that are available in Thai market. Its a simple parking space for around 90 cars. Yes, we need a sun roof.
I tried to contact you but could not find anyone. Or if you have someone that you can recommend me to, who does good work, that would be great. My phone number is 081 8441321
Are you hiring?
Not at the moment. However please send in CV and portfolio for our record.
