Dutch Profiles: Claus and Kaan Architects

00:07:19 0
Claus and Kaan Architects are well known for their minimalistic sobriety and conceptual approach. 

Since Felix Claus and Kees Kaan started collaborating in 1988, they have created several hundred projects; from small private villas to the fruition of complete urban plans. The Netherlands Forensic Institute located in The Hague, where crime scene evidence is analysed, is a good example of their style of thinking.

While sometimes expressive, but often minimalistic, luxury can be found in the details in Claus and Kaan's work.
