The son of Amsterdam banker Pieter de Clercq, Samuel de Clercq graduated from Delft University in 1900 as a civil engineer. A ZHESM railroad company employee, he designed stations, houses for the company's workers, as well as utility buildings. After a hostile takeover, De Clercq started working as an independent architect, expanding his domain to villas (many for textile factory owners) and banks. During the Interbellum, he regularly collaborated with [Dolf Broese van Groenou], with whom he also designed the Stadium for Scheveningen that was entered for the 1924 Olympics. De Clercq's best known building is the head office of life insurance company "Centrale" in Den Haag (1935), for which he also designed part of the furniture.
