Kamiel Klaasse graduated from TU Delft in 1995 and founded NL Architects in 1997 together with Walter van Dijk, Pieter Bannenberg and Mark Linnemann. They drew attention to themselves with the student project of the Carstadt house, which fulfills urban life and the function of parking. Today, the atelier has an international composition, counts around 25 members and enjoys the reputation of one of the most innovative offices. Projects from the NL workshop humorously and at the same time sensitively solve the problems not only of architecture itself, but also of urban life, housing and the unusual use of energy sources. They aroused wide interest, for example, with the competition design for the Taipei Performing Arts Center in Taiwan (2009) or the winning Multi Mill project (2010) for a floating cultural center for the docks in Amsterdam. Famous projects include the Basketbar in Utrecht, the renovation of the Cinecenter in Amsterdam and the NL Lounge at the Venice Biennale.
