Another contract could not be prolonged: now also Stephan had to leave the office. It is very frustrating to see him go after a long successful collaboration. Stephan worked on numerous projects, from Groninger Forum to Touwen and from Kameleon to Adelaar. In a way his unique Ausdauer and dedication ‘rescued’ the Spordtgebouw in Dordrecht. He played in important role in turning the project, that at some point seemed to spin out of control, into an unexpected beauty. Stephan so long!
