A student of Architectural Technology at Copenhagen’s KEA, Norbert is Better’s architect and 3D designer.

As a crypto, NFT and web3 enthusiast, it was only logical for him to jump into the fascinating world of metaverse architecture.

We do not limit our services to specific metaverses, but rather approach each client individually and find the best possible solution for them.
