Andrea Möhn - René Bouman Möhn+Bouman Architects

Möhn + Bouman Architects is an international architectural firm situated in Rotterdam, with almost 20 successful years producing bespoke, high quality architecture in a range of scale and function. Our projects include new buildings and renovations in a variety of sectors including private houses, residential developments, low-cost housing, student accommodation, commercial properties, healthcare centres and landscape and urban design. The firm adopts a unique design approach for each individual project ensuring the end product meets the client's needs and sits comfortably within its environment.
Founded by Andrea Möhn and René Bouman in 1998, Möhn + Bouman Architects is based close to the renowned port of Rotterdam.

Andrea Möhn.- attended the Technical University of Berlin, the University of Stuttgart, and the Technical University of Delft, the latter on an Erasmus scholarship. In 1994 she graduated from Stuttgart with a distinction.

Following graduation Andrea worked at various German and Dutch architectural firms, as well as Mecanoo.

Her main interests lie in the influence of the social, cultural and economic spheres upon architecture today. Her research in this field, as well as her extensive interaction throughout the design process with both clients and users of the buildings, have had significant impact on her work and approach. This multi-disciplinary approach has led to many innovative new concepts, resulting in numerous successful projects, many of which have received international attention and acclaim and appeared in publications around the world.

Alongside working at her firm, Andrea has lectured at Delft Technical University and been invited as a visiting critic at the University of Stuttgart.

René Bouman.-  one of the founding directors of Möhn + Bouman Architects and is directly involved with the projects, a main benefit of working within a small practice.

René is a creative designer and also mentors younger architects.

René's approach to a project is to study the site conditions and requirements of an assignment intensely and to think deeply about the various elements he wished to achieve with his design. This approach, along with his drive for the practice of architecture, results in both high quality, unique designs and exactness in delivery.

Following a Master from the Academy of Architecture in Rotterdam, René's experience was enhanced and honed during the nineties while working with/at UN Studio, Mecanoo and KCAP.

During his studies René minored in urban design and became fascinated by the relations among architecture, environment, art and construction that are still key issues in his work.

Teaching has formed an important role within the practice. Previously teaching at the Delft University of Technology, René is currently an external examiner at Oxford Brookes University in the UK and a teacher at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.
