Gepke Heun

Project leader, Urban planner

Gepke studied Architecture at Delft University of Techology from 2001 until 2008 where she did a bachelor in architecture and a master in urban development. In March 2008 Gepke graduated on the project: ‘Over buren en boeren, ontwikkelingsvisie voor de venen’ (‘On farmers and neighbours, development vision for peat bogs’); a design research into area development and developing new villages in rural areas outside of cities. She also obtained a ‘Belvedère endorsement’ on the role of cultural history in spatial developments. Gepke worked as a parttime designer at Bureau Alle Hosper during and after her studies.

Gepke has worked as an urban planner and landscape designer at H+N+S Landscape Architects since September 2008. Gepke has gained a lot of experience at H+N+S in a broad range of projects. She is fascinated by the combination of engineering and design and prefers to work on regional water planning and design projects. Because of her background as an urban planner, she also likes to work on projects at the interface between city and land. Gepke works in various team compositions and finds it important to jointly create a design with the parties concerned.
