ABOUT

WHO IS OBLIK?

I began Oblik Architecture and Design in 2018.

The pivotal moment in my career path came when I fell pregnant with my first child, I was pushed to consider the value of time and maximum productivity. The generic world of the corporate environment no longer suited the life I envisioned for myself as a future mother.

At 7 months pregnant, I left my corporate job and took the leap to create my own way forward, within the constraints of this male dominated industry.

I have worked in a variety of different architecture genres over the years and my experience eventually lead me to find my niche, specializing in refurbishments across the different categories of architecture.

I pay specific attention to the duality a building has, and just as I have different roles to fill and adapt to, my designs follow these principles in order to create different form and space.

VISION

Oblik means form in Croatian, an interesting term for a standard word. My mission phrase developed once I found the name for the company, “see form differently”. 

This is the basis of my approach, not only to my career but to the different roles I have in my life. The ability to take any brief, understand its parameters and elevate it to transcend a generic output.

In my role as an Architect this means to provide unique, well conceptualized designs that are able to function practically and economically. In my role as a Mother, it is the ability to balance my career and make sure I set a strong example to my children, that absolutely anything is achievable, because it’s not hard, just hard work.

MISSION

Oblik Architecture and Design aims to create spaces that recognize people’s different roles and celebrates their different needs.

In so doing this promotes a design which elevates productivity and growth not only to the user but the building and space being used.

I pay specific attention to the duality a building has, and just as I have different roles to fill and adapt to, my designs follow these principles in order to create different form and space.
