FG stijl is led by Colin Finnegan and Gerard Glintmeijer and comprises several different disciplines: interior architecture, architecture, product design, styling and graphic design. This combination of talents is utilized across a variety of projects that includes restaurants, hotels, offices and retail spaces. The office is located next to one of the city’s beautiful canals The Amstel and next to the Hermitage museum. Consistently striving for a style that is representative of the culture in which the project is constructed, the team develops the entire aesthetic of each project: they harmoniously bring together both architecture and interior design.
The F of FG stijl
Growing up in England, Colin P. Finnegan was inspired from an early age by visits to historical museums and palaces. This led to his study of interior design from an architectural perspective, with additional studies in Egyptology which culminated in travels along the Nile. In 1989 Finnegan moved to the Netherlands where he freelanced with various architectural offices before setting up his own. Finnegan met Gerard Glintmeijer in 1993 and their shared passion for design and the expression of style through interior spaces saw them join forces two years later: by 1995 Finnegan was working with Glintmeijer as a partner and founder of FG stijl.
