KAAN Architecten is a Netherlands based architectural firm, operating in a global context, KAAN merges practical and academic expertise within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research, and strategy.
The Rotterdam studio, led by Kees Kaan, Vincent Panhuysen, Dikkie Scipio consist of an international team of architects, landscape architects, urban planners, engineers and graphic designers.
KAAN Architecten operates across multiple platforms; we believe cross pollination between projects & disciplines is essential in fostering a critical debate within the studio, which prevents a rush to the routine and obvious. This process allows the studio to distribute and share expertise.
Our projects transcend scale & type: residential buildings and offices, retail to theaters, museums and buildings for the health and education. We actively work with both the public and private sector.
Project teams are becoming increasingly multidisciplinary. We initiate and participate in such teams and have been a strong partner in numerous successful collaborations.
KAAN Architecten is a professional platform. We are dedicated to developing our team and eager in maintaining a culture of evolution in the studio, which is essential in a profession that changes at a rapid pace. We seek to maintain long-term relationships with the clients and our preferred consultants and partners in the divers teams in which we operate.
