Additional information


I am available to travel for work.

(I have previous experience in travelling for work during my time at Van Aken, frequently travelling to UAE, Turkey and the United Kingdom amongst other places.) 

My name is Gordon Thomas Jack.

I am a creator and a designer.


In my daily life I am creating things

– big or small.


I draw my energy from the creation of ideas, conceptual thinking and find solutions to the question “what if….!?”


I have a passion for working in complex multi-disciplinary international projects in collaboration with highly skilled and dedicated individuals to create unique and memorable buildings, places and spaces. 

Whether it is designing an apartment buildings in Amsterdam, office towers in Dubai or utility buildings in Istanbul, each project is an opportunity to create a truly special design for the clients and the users.
