Claus en Kaan Architecten was founded in 1988 by Felix Claus and Kees Kaan. The practice has a staff of 60 well-skilled professionals of various nationalities, based in offices located in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Claus en Kaan Architecten provides architecture, interior design, restoration and urban design in both national and international projects. Special skills are available in research, development and communication of urban strategies in complex contexts and multiple interests. Fine buildings are the result of a continuous design process throughout the execution of the project, in which client and architect work together in achieving best value and architectural quality. Building encompasses involvement in the concept and design stage, through planning, to construction and completion of the project. Our expertise is based upon a solid foundation of budget, process and programme control, and an intensive dialogue with the city, the client, consultants, contractors and end users. Claus en Kaan Architecten is fascinated by this process of building practice. To understand, master and challenge building in all contexts forms the essence of our attitude towards projects. An attitude that leads not to a specific style of architecture, but definitely to an architecture which can be identified as that of Claus en Kaan Architecten.
