Redesigning beautiful old buildings with a nod to the past and a modern twist at the same time. That is one of the specialities of design studio Merk X. Completely new designs are also in good hands with owner Evelyne Merkx, though. You could say that her expertise lies somewhere in between architecture and interior design, and over the years she has re-designed monuments as well as private homes and public buildings. One of her more recent projects include the expansion and renovation of the Groote Museum in Artis Zoo in Amsterdam, an old building that dates back to 1850.
