who we are

2by4 is an office that uses architecture as a tool to improve the quality of the existing. We work on different projects in the field of housing, healthcare, urban planning, landscape design, education, public buildings, cultural buildings, sports buildings and transport HUBs.

research and design

To better understand the task at hand and to be aware of the decisions we make during the design process we start each project by doing an in depth research on the specific subject. This way we are able to create architecture that is not about the sensation, but about the essence and creating a solid and sustainable solution.

working together

We see every design as a new challenge where together with the client we can develop new ideas and customize a project in every phase of the design. From the first concept and urban layout to the selection of materials and the designing of details. For every project we set up a specific team that suits the wishes and ideas of the client. This enables us to create powerful architecture that is strongly embedded in the (social) context and can stand the test of time.

Remko Remijnse (1974) is co-founder and owner at 2by4-architects. After graduating with honors at the TU-Delft in 2001 Remijnse has worked for Claus and Kaan Architects in Rotterdam. Here Remijnse was involved in national and international projects. In 2002 Remijnse started his own office called Remijnse Architecture. Here he developed the vision he still stands for: powerful and timeless architecture with a strong social connection. The tasteful designs that came from this vision found a partner in 2005. Together with architect Rocco Reukema, after collectively winning the competition ‘The Future of the Dutch Coast Line’, Remijnse started 2by4-architects. Since 2017 Remijnse has continued 2by4-architects by himself.
Remijnse’s social involvement goes beyond the office. Since 2002 Remijnse is lecturing and teaching at the TU-Delft, the Academy of Architecture in Rotterdam and The University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam. Internationally Remijnse gave lectures and taught at the University of San Salvador and did NGO work on the Cape Verde Island of Sal. In 2011 Remijnse became head of the Bachelor of Architecture department in Rotterdam. Here, together with a small team of ambitious teachers, Remijnse develops content for the Bachelor program.
