About Me

Info

Hi, my name is Marta and I am an architect.

At the Atelier I mostly collaborate on residential projects, but during my divers past experiences I did lots of other types of projects in numerous styles. My research focuses on project management and communication skills of architects. At an early age I discovered that architecture is my true passion. I enjoy working on projects related to architecture and understanding aspects of it.

I am open to new opportunities: job propositions, research questions, or simply discussions about architecture. Do not hesitate to get in touch with me via my blog, that will start soon!, or via email. You can check out my CV and portfolio on this site as well.
