Daniel is a firm believer in applied architecture, meaning his offices spend just as much time on the factory floor as on site, in the forest or in front of the screen. He focuses on sustainable building with a special interest in cross laminated timber and efficient industrial production and mass customization. He strives to be engaged in the full building process, which has led to a series of new ventures within engineering, software development and property development.
