Within workingwell it is also the people who make the difference. With many years of project experience and expertise, our architects, interior designers and communication experts work closely together on complex tasks. Our creative team welcomes the opportunity to face new challenges with unusual methods and new approaches.
Our cosmopolitan. She grew up in India, studied in Weihenstephan, and in between she managed to travel to 20 countries. “30 (countries) by 30”: that's her goal. Her true passion lies in exploring the architectural wonders of this world. Innovative buildings, inspiring landscapes and functional spaces- in Nishtha’s mind they are re-imagined, revitalized, and brought to the next level. No matter what, there’s one thing she never forgets: her vision of making the world just that little bit more colourful.
A yogi and a foodie; health and wellbeing – those are her passions. No wonder then that she radiates energy, positively infecting the ones around her. She works wherever it feels right, pausing for a quick cobra pose when she can, and is often with a green smoothie in hand. Work-life-flow: Damaris is the living example. And our clients? They feel inspired by her vision of a healthy working environment.
Jack of all trades. Whether it’s tapping beer behind the bar in an Irish Pub or sketching away at the drawing table in an architectural office – Wanda’s talents are as versatile as they come. One more reason why she is your go-to-woman, when things go south. With a razor-sharp mind and just the right amount of coolness, she tackles every task that comes her way. And when her batteries need recharging, Wanda simply follows the sound of silence to the coast of Norway. Or she enjoys the comfort of family, friends and good food back home on the Swabian Alb.
A mediator by passion. Minka has no love for unanswered questions: she challenges, discusses and motivates- until the last drop of information is revealed and everyone is completely satisfied. In all she does, she brings generous amounts of sensitivity and finesse. And if she’s in need of motivation herself? Then you’ll find her in one of Cologne’s many courtyard flea markets, soaking up the relaxed atmosphere.
Purist meet poet. Opposites seem to magically attract Julian. For example, the harmonious juxtaposition of old and new or the perfect staging of different styles. But above all, he loves people with exciting stories and out-of-the-box thoughts. That's why the best way for him to relax is during a poetry slam or daydreaming about a big garden, growing vegetables and BBQ parties with friends. With self-harvested potato salad, obviously.
Self-made designer. Whether it’s an unconventional spatial design or a crochet teddy bear for her children: Betty’s designs are the perfect blend of pragmatism and attention for detail. Does it have to be aesthetically pleasing and trendy? Obviously. But functionality always has top priority, as does having a sense for customer needs. She wants them to feel comfortable in their new space, after all. Speaking of comfortable: Betty herself feels best surrounded by the sound of music – both in her local choir or when receiving a special birthday serenade in the midst of the Oktoberfest crowd.
A creative mind: from designing websites to refreshing the house when it’s in need of a new coat of paint. Sitting around patiently waiting for a good ideas to pop by? Not an option for Martina. She’d rather take matters (or paint brushes and spray cans) into her own hands and let her artistic impulses run free. A creative crisis in sight? Then it’s time for singing and dancing, and if nothing else will help, the soothing purring of her tomcat Charles probably will.
Idea-juggler by nature. Looking for a boost of innovation and current Zeitgeist? Best ask Carina. She knows what's hot and happening in design, culture and human development. That’s why she likes to leave her comfort zone, roaming the streets and galleries, and networking with those who inspire her. After all, her vision is, ”Making the difference“. And that she does, when she spoils family and friends with her legendary breakfast delicacies in the weekend.
Our analyst. Numbers and data are his field of expertise. He knows how to extract meaning from even the smallest piece of information. And when Andreas dives away into his think tank, he’ll certainly resurface with a dazzling idea. That’s when the man of numbers turns into a genius explorer. Through this he enthuses those around them – never putting himself in the spotlight but always moving others with his heart and soul.
Bon vivant. But always with a clear conscience. Vegetarian, organic and fair trade – that’s her standard. To Tanja, the most sustainable of all is the power of words . And so she celebrates them: in illustrious company at the Italian around the corner or completely relaxed with the Sunday newspaper on the couch. And at workingwell? There's a lot to say and do. After all, words are not actions.
A chameleon. Technology expert, sports scientist, personal trainer and hobby philosopher. You just can’t put Boris into one box. Connecting his talents for maximum impact is what he does best. Suddenly technology has meaning, project management is done with a sporty twist and clients get personal, no, professional training. But at home – that’s where he doesn’t need to prove anything. There, funny faces and gripping bedtime stories provide plenty of excitement.
A perfectionist with heart and soul. Lost all perspective? No need to worry – Antonia will bring light into the darkness. She carefully plans and structures until the very last “T” has been crossed and the final “I” has been dotted. That's how she gets wild ideas turned into fool proof concepts. Her soft spot for good design isn’t a secret – but only if it’s pure. True to the motto, “Form follows function”: After all, everything is better if it has purpose.
Profound. Ilka brings light into the darkness, especially when it comes to people and cultures. She thrives on diving into the depths of understanding diverse human needs. At the end of the day, she wants to know what really moves people and it is this which gives meaning to her work. He favourite ways to take time out for herself are to get lost in her beloved Canadian wilderness “away from it all” or to get equally lost in a foreign land on one of her many travel adventures.
A people-person through and through. Whether it’s with family, friends or colleagues – being together is what makes life worth living for Axel. Skiing or cycling in the Bavarian mountains are his sources of energy. That’s when the do-er turns into a visionary. And the moment a new plan has been made? Time to roll up your sleeves and get started.
Strategist with a vision. Lindsay has the future under control by staying up to date on the latest trends and next developments. Through this she charms our clients and chases away the competition. If she’s looking for an escape herself? Then this globe-trotter just goes home – to London, Toronto or Dubai. But no worries, she'll always be back on time when you need her.
Design. That's Britta’s calling. If she isn’t busy giving our clients a new look, you’ll surely find her out and about searching for the latest trends and inspiration. Looking for something courageous and extravagant? Or rather stylish and casual? No problem at all. But only if there’s a clear strategy: Britta doesn’t like wasting time. After all, her motto is, ”Design doesn’t have to please – design has to fit.”
An architect with excellent taste. Drawing is Christina's passion, whether it’s a detailed floor plan or the spontaneous sketch of a new design. Her true source of inspiration, however, is the kitchen. There, this foodie lets go of all constraints and embraces experiments to whip up home-style cooking with an exotic twist. Inspiration also awaits on a gourmet journey to the culinary hotspots of this world – because true happiness requires only a handful of ingredients: summer, sun, sea and a very good wine.
Organisational miracle. Julia has everything under control - whether it's planning a client event or making our workingwell candidates feel at home. Among other crucial topics, the native Swabian does not lose sight of the business finances. An exception to this rule may be when she’s taking a stroll through the city center of Stuttgart. It’s here that she just might be persuaded by the latest fashion novelty. Although it might not fit the budget, it promises just enough happiness to allow for the financial rules to be bent.
Solid as a rock. With the typical Swiss serenity, a healthy dose of pragmatism and always a clear mind, Luzia manages even the most demanding projects. Experiencing tension in the team or dealing with dissatisfied clients? No need to worry: the right communication and a lot of empathy will get everyone back on track before you know it. And after work? Nature is calling her, preferably together with the whole family and a group of friends.
Breaking the status quo – in theory and practice. When others are still caught up in heated discussions, Ansgar will likely already have a plan sketched out. Grand ideas and groundbreaking strategies – he’s your man. But only if they’re well thought through. After all, he has been tackling the core questions concerning people and space for more than 20 years. And when his mind needs a rest, Ansgar retreats to the kitchen where he spoils his loved ones with culinary delights.
