office

RAUMPLAN is founded in 2019 by David Klinkhamer and Roel van der Zeeuw. Both partners have worked at renowned architecture firms and have gained extensive experience in designing and developing a diverse range of projects in The Netherlands and abroad.

RAUMPLAN engages in all architectural and urbanist design, creating projects of all scales ranging from furniture to masterplanning. The practice also connects academic research and teaching to its work as it considers a vital relationship between the two as mutually beneficial in creating unexpected views and crossovers.
