KRFT is an architectural studio from Amsterdam and runs projects in The Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.

"KRFT operates in a reality where the profession of the architect is changing rapidly, shifting its borders and expanding its universe. In this new paradigm, the reality of architecture -space and material - is often becoming secondary to its virtual reality - image and story."

Willand is Business Developer for KRFT. We are in search to connect KRFT with new clients, developers and architectural design firms to collaborate on future projects. Read more about KRFT here.


PATCHWORK, designed by Barcode Architects and krft, will be one of the first developments in the future sustainable Sluisbuurt area in Amsterdam. For the design, the architectural offices joined forces and won the tender for Sluisbuurt plot 5A1 in cooperation with ABC Planontwikkeling, EarthY, DGMR, and Buro Sant en Co.
