Joris learnt the ‘art of looking’ at an early age from his father, who was landscape photographer. He started working in the development business, because of his need to not only look and capture, but to also create. He uses his open mindset to develop complex construction projects within our built environment. Joris has worked in the commercial real estate sector and is of the opinion that people can only be happy living in a combined living and working environment. Joris loves contrast. Contrast between people, buildings, city and nature or between quiet and busy.
