In 2000 Patrick graduated as an architect at the Technical University of Delft. After traveling for a year, he started working at BBHD architects office, where he became a project architect. After winning a number of major competitions in this position, Patrick found that he no longer had the time to continue his passion for building models. In 2010 he started his own architecture firm, Plan B Architects, where he mainly designs residential and recreational houses for individuals and small developers in the Netherlands, Surinam and England. In 2015, Team V gave Patrick the opportunity to start working part-time as a model builder, so he could turn his hobby into a job.
