Design & Build Studio
About KLAK
Who & why?
Contact KLAK
studioklakberlin [AT]

KLAK is a hybrid creature.
It derives from both our passion to design and our need to build.

By doing so, we design with constructive details in mind and build with loving care while seeing the space as a whole.

Coming from the architectural field, we also developed over many years our woodworks skills, creating projects that are playful in design and professional in production. The design+build practice enables us to save time on communication with manufacturers and thus saves money to our clients. It also makes sure that the same level of attention and love are put in every step of the process. From the first sketch to the very last screw.

We speak English, German, Hebrew, French, and some Italian and Spanish. 

Ben Frick

Dipl. Ing. Architecture from Universität Stuttgart. Born in Düsseldorf.

During my studies, I discovered different collectives that fascinated me in many ways, and that radically changed my way of thinking and working as an architect.

After an internship at Raumlabor Berlin, I worked for many years with the art, architecture, and social collective Bruit du Frigo (Bordeaux). Designing and building spaces that are playful, functional while keeping constructive details in mind have become the focus of my work. With this practice and knowledge, I continued as a freelancer in my own projects as well as in collaboration with other collectives for temporary, experimental, urban furnitures, exhibitions, art installations, scenography and interior design.

Zachi Razel

B.Arch degree from Tel Aviv University.
Born in Tel Aviv.

After my Architecture studies, and 3 years working for 1:1 Landscape Architecture and Urban Design (by Land.Arc. Havi Livne) I headed to Europe to gain experience in the Design & Build practice.

In the last 3 years I’ve been working with different studios such as Raumlabor Berlin, Recetas Urbanas (Spain) and 72 HUA (Israel/Germany), which integrate Architecture, Art, and social engagement. In between, I was commissioned independentally to design and build projects for music festivals, interiors, art installations, scenography, and exhibitions.
