Merkxs + Girod
Merkxs + Girod has, over the past 10 years, developed to become one of Holland’s most recognised interior design studios. With the utmost respect for the quality of the often monumental buildings they work on, they know how to adapt interiors to the demands of contemporary users.
Like the Concertgebouw, the department shop Hema, the Ministers Hall, the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum, and the Textile Museum… Projects in which their smart solutions with great sense for detail, fabric and colour, stand out. And for the 800-year-old Dominicaner Church in Maastricht, which was to be transformed into a large bookshop, they devised an elegant proposal.
