Pleased to meet you.
I am Dunja aka Quince (as my name literally means quince) and Quince Design Studio is my London based oasis of creativity where I work as an experienced architectural designer and artist. I’m a wife and a proud mum of two.
I truly enjoy what I do. I can simply find inspiration in everything that surrounds us. My projects respond creatively to their context, regardless of their size. I find myself in many fields - from feasibility studies, urban and concept design, over architectural design to more detailed, interior design. Recently, I returned to some of my neglected passions - painting and digital art. This versatility alongside dedication and great persistence helps me significantly in dealing with every design challenge.
In order to create authentic work, we always have to go through the process of self-discovery and put our ego aside. Behind every successful architectural idea, besides the great amount of knowledge, passion, energy and commitment, there has to be a lot of flexibility and understanding of people's needs and ambition. We have to think of architecture as a complex social system.
Research is a vital aspect of my work. Every single day in the studio is a learning experience that allows me to move forward, to grow.
I'm grateful to be able to do what I love.
