Roman, Jacob (1640–1716). Dutch architect and sculptor. He designed (1677) a country-house at Zeist, the interior of which was decorated by Marot, and the more sumptuous Het Loo, near Apeldoorn (1684—now Rijksmuseum Paleis, Het Loo), with a similar layout to that of Zeist, with splendid formal gardens, recently restored. He again collaborated with Marot at the fine De Voorst (1695), a country-house near Zutphen, for Arnold Joost van Keppel (1669–1718—1st Earl of Albermarle from 1696). He also designed the façade of the Stadhuis, Deventer (1693), and Meermansburg, Leiden (1681—handsome almshouses grouped around a central court).
