Lean Keilhofer
Architectural Graduate

With a life-long passion for design, Lena was drawn to architecture for its mix of creativity and functionality. During and after her studies at the Technical University in Munich she gained valuable insights in high end residential and multi-residential projects all over Germany.  As a registered Architect in Germany she developed an in-depth understanding of design and solution-oriented thinking. But it was during her year long study at UQ in Brisbane, where she truly fell in love with Australia and its Architecture. Since 2020 Lena has been based on the Sunshine Coast driven to create the perfect spaces for her clients, always willing to go the extra mile.
