Remko Remijnse, born in 1974, is an architect who graduated with honors from TU-Delft in 2001. His architectural journey began at Kaan Architects in Rotterdam, where he gained experience working on national and international projects. In 2002, Remijnse established his own architecture office, Remijnse Architecture, which became the foundation for his enduring principles: creating powerful and timeless architecture while emphasizing strong social and sustainable connections.
His design philosophy found a like-minded partner in architect Rocco Reukema in 2005, and together they founded 2by4-architects. With their shared vision, they achieved success by winning multiple competitions and gaining global recognition through the publication of their buildings. The media praised their designs for their social consciousness and the value they brought to communities.
In 2016 Remijnse became single owner of 2by4-architects.
Remijnse’s commitment to social engagement extends beyond his architectural practice. Since 2002, he has been actively involved in teaching and lecturing at esteemed institutions such as TU-Delft, the Academy of Architecture in Rotterdam, and The University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam. His expertise has also been shared internationally, as he has given lectures and taught at the University of San Salvador and engaged in NGO work on the Cape Verde Island of Sal.
From 2011 to 2020, Remijnse served as the head of the Bachelor of Architecture department in Rotterdam. Leading a dedicated team of ambitious educators, he played a vital role in developing the program’s curriculum, focusing on architectural content that encompasses sustainability and addresses contemporary social challenges.
