Longlisted for emerging architect of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Julius Taminiau Architects is a Dutch architecture studio founded by Julius Taminiau in 2015.
Based in Amsterdam, the studio believes that good architecture can make people happy. The firm tries to give its projects a certain deeper connectedness, by seeking beyond the architectural scope and to look for connections with nature, music, art, philosophy and even gastronomy. The studio believes its multicultural and multidisciplinary interests contribute to this.
This is manifested in the architects' design approach, which emphasises and gives space to the beauty and relation with: space, time, elements of weather, natural materials, greenery, art and – very importantly – the users.
