It’s with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Maarten Buijs to the position of Commercial Director.
Maarten joined ASPECT Studios upon returning to Melbourne after spending the last 11 years with West 8 in Rotterdam. Prior to that, Maarten spent 13 years in Cairns running his own landscape architecture business. Having obtained his qualification in The Netherlands, the majority of Maarten’s professional experience was gained in Australia; notably Far North Queensland and Victoria. During his tenure at West 8, most of his work was abroad in London, UK and Toronto, Canada.
Maarten’s expertise stems from his work on a multitude of projects globally varying in nature, scale, size and complexity. Many of the large and complex urban design projects he managed in the UK required a thorough understanding of the sensitivities local planning and stakeholder consultation requires.
Commenting on his appointment Maarten says “It is a real privilege to have this to opportunity to join ASPECT Studios who are recognised internationally as design leaders. I look forward to contributing to the continued growth and development of the practice and I am very grateful for the warm welcome I have been given.”
As Commercial Director, Maarten will work collaboratively with ASPECT’s design leaders to grow ASPECT Studios with a truly global outlook.
