Every designer has their own recipes. For me, every project starts with perfect insight and understanding of the wishes, needs and personality of a client for a first briefing.

As a trained carpenter, I am convinced that only things that were made with a profound knowledge of materials and their composition will last. I strive for functional, timeless design with pure details, made for the unique personality of my clients.

I am always aware that good design is created within a dialogue. The fact that I am in the position to direct this process inspires me every day.

As a son of a Croatian mother and a father from Appenzell, I grew up in the beautiful city of St. Gallen. I had to learn to combine different influences from an early age. When I was six years old, I was allowed to spend some time in my grandfather’s carpentry shop, where I internalised the process of working with raw materials. My journey from carpentry to planning gives me a broad range of knowledge, which I can constantly expand upon. The aspiration to constantly rethink and implement the work as a common thread has become my passion.
