Marlies Boterman is a London-Amsterdam based architect. She has worked with architectural offices such as OMA, Inside Outside and SevilPeach and in 2012 founded her own practice. 
As an architect and furniture maker Marlies aspires to creating bespoke designs for cultural and international projects ranging from objects to buildings, such as furniture, sculpture, private houses, pavilions, lobbies, corporate headquarters, hospitals and courthouses.
A recurring theme in her design approach is for each project to gain a site-specific context, often by exploring the spatial, historical and geological layers. The aesthetics of her designs reflect these concepts by creating environments that gradually reveal themselves and engage the visitor.
At the core of her process is an attention to detail and an appreciation of craftsmanship. By exploring sustainable and local materials she aims to include the richness of the earth and the value of raw materials in modern architecture. 

Marlies lectures internationally about her work and is heading a pre-master education program at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam. Additionally she has taught at architecture academies in Arnhem, Rotterdam, Tilburg, TU-Delft and The Cass, London.
