For Damien, buildings must first perform exceptionally, which explains his fascination with passive design principles and reliance on empirical evidence. With a background in environmental science, Damien feels at home with thermal modelling, and he considers carbon footprint measurement a fundamental component of best practice architecture.
Damien balances performance modelling, construction detailing and documentation with the management of Anderson Architecture’s IT systems. Despite a strong focus on technical performance, he ensures this is never pursued at the expense of captivating, contemporary design.
With Belgian heritage, Damien relishes international travel and speaks fluent French. For relaxation, he enjoys SCUBA diving and rock climbing, and once cycled solo across Italy for kicks.
