Novantatre ?

A name that reflects me but does not immediately recognize who is behind.

Born in Luxembourg in 1993, I have always been drawn to the number 93. For me, it was the perfect start to create an identity.

It all began with my time in Italy. Having Italian roots, I have always been interested in Italian design; but after living in Milan for over a year, the Italian lifestyle characterized me in many ways.

There was no getting around combining the number 93 with my love for Italy. I translated 93 into Italian and finally I had the perfect name : thus Novantatre was born.

More Info

I have always been passionate about architecture. Because of this, my path led me from an artistic section in Luxembourg to Munich, Germany.

I started my B.A. at the TUM (Technische Universität München) in 2011/2012; there I learned all of the concepts & techniques of artchitecture. After 2 years of being inspired by German technology and professors like Max Dudler, I was given the opportunity to discover Italian design during my Erasmus. Having ever been fascinated by Italy, I chose Milan, the city of design.

During this year, at the university, 'Politecnico di Milano', I developed my passion for interior design. Forever seeking something different, new and special became one of my obsessions.

After I successfully completed my B.A. at the TUM, I applied for my M.A.. During these years in Munich, I developed an additional passion for timber construction.


In timber construction, the need for precise planning, the important ecological aspect, and the faster construction process really fascinated me; as did the mode of construction that is not yet fully established here in central Europe.

In 2018, after 2 years of studying timber construction, as well as completing several projects such as a mountain hut, a winery and others, I finally completed my Master of Arts (the equivalent to the academic title, Dipl.-ing at the Technische Universität München) under Professor Hermann Kaufmann.
