Aldis is a qualified architect in both Iceland and Denmark, holding an MA from the Royal Danish Academy – Architecture, Design and Conservation, where she honed her specialisation in cultural heritage, transformation, and restoration. She further has a degree in interior design from the Lorenzo de Medici Art Institute in Florence, Italy.
Fascinated by how architecture and its surroundings affect humans, Aldis utilises a phenomenological approach when designing. Her understanding of the interplay between humans, the senses and their surroundings allows her to further the dialogue that exists between humans and architecture.

Hailing from Iceland, Aldis grew up captivated by the symbiosis that can exist between buildings and nature. Her exploration of her home country cultivated her interest and passion for natural materials and sustainable construction techniques that pay homage and partner well with the surrounding nature.
Aldis’ love of cultural heritage and restoration, coupled with her passion for sustainable and natural materials and interplay between constructed spaces and nature, allows her to create a cohesive design that reflects both its surroundings, and the clients wishes.

Aldis’ core competencies lie in the intersection of cultural heritage, transformation, restoration, and interior design with a focus on valuation, analysis, research, concept development and designing. Her expert knowledge of surfaces, material usage, acoustics, lighting, and fixtures allows for her to create a cohesive and experience-based architectural experience. Aldis utilizes her combined skillsets and educational background to create new spaces whilst enacting sustainable actions.
