Bovenbouw is a young Belgian office, based in Antwerp. Dirk Somers, professor, manager and head designer leads a team of 18 talented European architects.
Bovenbouw’s work is characterized by an open minded and untimely approach to design, fully freed from the compulsive desire to be avant-garde. Paradoxically, Bovenbouw does not reject the notion of style. Bovenbouw tries to reinvent a style specific to every situation. This quest for style can be understood in a true classical sense, bringing together old and new ideas in an interesting blend of the everyday and the everlasting.
Bovenbouw’s work has already been shown at various exhibitions in Venice, Munich, Mendrisio, Aachen, London and Antwerp.
