MEET THE TEAM

It’s not how big the house is; it’s how happy the home is.

Having: freedom, nature, and simplicity as main pillars, we advocate the act of “less is more” to truly enjoy the simple things in the most beautiful spots in Belgium and in Europe.

We support today’s actions to preserve nature by promoting unique experiences through an original and amusing way.

THE TEAM

Wildernest is our way back to basic

Emile De Dryver

Architect

Emile is Wildernest’s head architect. Determined to combine his passion to his dreams, he graduated from the ULB Architecture Faculty: La Cambre Horta in 2018.

While gaining considerable professional experience during his studies, Emile fell in love with the Tiny House concept and its balanced mobility-housing mix. He even decided to write his thesis on it in order to acquire additional knowledge on the subject.

Emile joined Wildernest team in 2016 and has been there ever since. Constantly searching for new challenges, his capacity for empathy makes him ceaselessly working in order to best match a Tiny with a client’s dreams.

Tom de Dorlodot

Paragliding pilot & Adventurer

Who better to promote a nomadic lifestyle than a professional paraglider pilot traveling around the world in search of the best flying spots to fly paragliding? Tom is an accomplished athlete who led multiple paragliding expeditions. He took part, 5 times, in the biggest (and toughest) paragliding competition, Red Bull X-Alps and is known for his long bivouac flights and high altitude records across New Zealand, Karakoram and Pyrenees. Tom has been flying in more than 60 countries around the world, including: Pakistan, Mali, Brazil and French Polynesia.
Apart from being an adventure addict, Tom is a nature enthusiast. Home is wherever nature is so why not take it with you 😉
