Karsten spent the first ten years of his career with Stantec (then Anshen+Allen) in North America and the UK. For 18 years, Karsten has focused his experience on healthcare, science, and technology design. Before rejoining Stantec, Karsten was project director for a Comprehensive Cancer Center in Sydney, Australia. These days he’s working with Hamad Medical Corporation on the National Center for Cancer Care and Research in Doha, Qatar.
His global experience gives Karsten a unique perspective on international best practices and the new trends developing around the world. He believes in designing with a purpose—and that the purpose is to serve people. He enjoys learning from clients and from their work environments, bringing those elements together to create spaces that are new experiences.
Karsten will submerge himself in his client’s world, and in the world of the end user. By understanding how people will experience a space, he can harmonize simplicity and necessity.
