Merkx + Girod Architecten

Rijksmuseum De Meesterwerken

The project

In this design a proper balance has been found between the visual support of the elements on display and innovative elements such as the enlarged images of 17th century damask on the walls.

Committee

The choice for bold colours and typography seems quite risky at first sight, considering the important value of the collection on display. But the result is the opposite: it adds to the exhibition and makes it rich and opulent, and at the same time maintains peace full and clear.
