Carmela Bogman places the emphasis on people in her designs for public space with projects that are art as well as design. All projects start with a research in the plan area and are focused on the present landscape elements, the inhabitants and the cultural history. Bogman believes in the power of detail.
Apart from her designs Bogman also explores the boundaries of her profession by research. Such as Creative Coasts a research about the function of water in the city of Gdansk, Poland and My Way or the Highway a research about private road ownership under the authority of the province Overijssel. From 2011 Bogman organizes together with Femke Glas (BNO), GO live. A series of visits and discussions with sustainability as the main topic.
In 2012 Carmela Bogman was nominated for the FrameMoooi award with her design Tumble Seed.
