Architect, Project Leader and Mother

I have been working with ATP Frankfurt for 4 years, firstly as an architect, then as a project leader and, for the last six months, in a part-time role due to the fact that eighteen months ago I became a mother.
My day begins with structuring the tasks in hand. At the beginning of my part-time activity I first had to adapt my thinking to the fact that I suddenly had just 5-6 rather than 8-10 hours ahead of me. In cooperation with my colleagues we developed new models which made it possible for me to work independently on partial projects in each design phase in such a way that my limited hours were not a problem. So far, I have been able to carry out all the necessary coordination work with all those involved in the design process during my “core hours”.
In all this, the possibilities for an architect who has become a mother and yet who wants to get back to the drawing board have not been limited but have rather, due to the potential of “flexible working hours”  been increased. This is good for both sides, such as in – for example – unexpected personal situations such as when a child is ill or when there is a lot of work due to key deadlines on the project timetable.
