Francine graduated as an interior designer at the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Zwolle, after which she worked for six years at Architectuurstudio HH. As interior designer she was involved in major projects such as the Fire Station in Sittard and the Vredenburg Music Centre. According to Francine interior design is more than just styling; it’s not only about color and material finishing, but also about workplace concepts, lighting, custom made furniture and integrating rules and regulations. She retrieves most satisfaction out of total concepts, where interior and architecture are integrally designed. At Team V she is working as interior architect on several projects, including the interior design for Fonds 21, Flow Traders, TU/e Main Building and the New University Building.
