Kamiel Klaasse graduated from the TU Delft in 1995 and in 1997, together with Walter van Dijk, Pieter Bannenberg and Marc Linneman, he set up the office NL Architects. Well-known projects include the Basketbar in Utrecht, the renovation of Cinecenter in Amsterdam, and the NL Lounge at the Venice Biennale. Today, the studio has an international composition, numbers around 25 members and enjoys the reputation of one of the most innovative offices. Projects from the NL studio with a joke and at the same time sensitively solve problems not only of the architecture itself, but also of city life, housing or the unusual use of energy resources. For example, their competition proposal for the Taipei Performing Arts Center (2009) in Taiwan or the winning project Multi Mill (2010) from the competition for a floating cultural center for the Amsterdam wharf aroused widespread interest.
