At age 20 I left Holland for a two-day sailing journey to Norway. Months of walking solo resulted in being 'one with nature'. White noise gradually faded, allowing for insights and conversations interviewing myself about meaning and purpose.
With a strong appreciation of natural beauty; I realised the potential to design,
using nature as my inspiration.
4 years later I migrated to Australia in 1982.
From Japanese inspired furniture to set design, exhibition, landscape, interior and product design; I ultimately found my biggest passion in 2002 for architectural design.
The combination of the many is what shaped noekdesign to be. Both new dwelling design and renovation design are all scope of works Australia wide
