Meet Kamran Mouzoon of Kamran Mouzoon Architects in Rice Village

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kamran Mouzoon.

Kamran, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
As an Iranian Emigrant, I started with zero. After finishing the graduate school (Rice University, 1986) I initially worked for variety of firms in Houston area. In 1994, I founded Kamran Mouzoon Architects, P.C. not knowing anyone who could afford an architect. Leased an office space, about 250 sq. ft. close to my home, I started to practice.

Twenty years later, I am enjoying receiving calls from all sectors of the society for design services. My office is a display board of architectural design based on the poetics of space; the principle by which I practice architecture.

Now, I look back and see the variety of projects I have completed or worked on and those that are still in the pipeline.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has not been. Early on I decided to not to have a niche, so whatever project comes in is fine. This strategy made my practice challenging and at the same time fulfilling. The struggles were many; from not knowing where to find information in the code book, to who to ask, to what is the course of action to take for a project type that I have not done before, to financial and managerial challenges.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
In Kamran Mouzoon Architects, we do architectural design for a wide variety of projects. I am responsible for all projects’ design, production, and management, Now after many years, I can say that I am specialized in custom residential design, retail, educational, religious, entertainment, and restaurant designs. We are known for reliability and quality. The portfolio of projects and the list of clients is what we take pride in.

It is very difficult to pinpoint what sets us apart from others. We look at each client or project as a great potential for discovery. This becomes apparent in the interviews generally held in our office. With models and drawings displayed at every nook and cranny, the clients realize our potential without hesitation.

What were you like growing up?
I grew up in Iran. I was always known in my family as a tidy and organized person.
