Magda joined JLA with a background in residential and commercial projects in London and Amsterdam. She believes architecture is a product of the human mind and sees it as negotiation between intuition and reasoning that challenges perception and seeks to bring analytical and empirical processes together into ‘technical creativity.’ For her, architecture is mediation between man and nature where nature’s attributes can enhance human well-being and help to experience its surrounding. It ought to appeal to all senses and balance the search for one’s inner space with measurable reality. Thus, architecture should never be purely intellectual, conceptual or visual play alone.
In her spare time, Magda loves to travel, paint, and make furniture, as well as practice yoga, bouldering and swimming.

“A ‘space’ is something that has been made room for… with a boundary. A boundary is not that at which something stops but, as the Greeks recognized, the boundary is that from which something begins its presence. The space gathers its essence from locations (boundaries) and not from the space itself.” – Martin Heidegger
