Arno believes good detailing can make a difference in architecture. He likes to be involved from the start to the finish of a project, working closely with the architect and specializing in the details. Arno is the main specification writer for Thinkspace projects.
After graduating from Technical School in Carpentry, Arno continued his education by completing a 4-year study for Architectural Technologist, followed by a 4-year study for Architectural Engineer. He worked for close to 12 years in the Netherlands, including projects such as mixed-use retail and residential projects, ING headquarters and one of the largest libraries in the Netherlands. In September 2007, he immigrated to Canada and settled in Lake Country.
