Interior design for the new office building of Ernst&Young designed by Foster Architects, located at the Zuidas in Amsterdam.

The architecture of the 26.000 square metre, 22 storey-high building is very clear and straightforward in reaction to which Merkx + Girod designed a ‘softer’ layer for the entire interior.

Special attention was hereby given to the spatial relations and qualities of the different areas and the use of materials, colour, three dimensionality, decoration and graphics.
