FG stijl
a brief history
Designed for people - perhaps an obvious sentiment, but one that is often forgotten in an era when design saturates day-to-day life. For FG stijl, designing for people was a seedling idea from which sprung countless three-dimensional experiences, and now, more than a decade on, it is the expression of our interior design company’s DNA. We create every project anew, for our clients and for their guests.

In March 2015, we celebrated our 20th anniversary. The first decade produced a prolific body of work, the culmination of which was expressed in our native Amsterdam’s award-winning The College Hotel, which opened in 2005. These efforts secured the Prix Villégiature award for ‘Best Hotel Interior Design in Europe’. A decade later (2015), FG stijl reclaimed the prize with the flagship Park Hyatt Vienna dubbed a “Pearl of Vienna” for the Best Interior Design for a Hotel in Europe.

From these strong foundations we have continued the growth of FG stijl as a full service interior design agency commissioned to work on major hotel brands such as Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental, Sheraton, and Jumeirah. Our designs can also be found in exceptional private residences around the world, landmark projects such as BMW Welt and the Albertina Museum, and the private jet lounge at Schiphol International Airport.

Our projects span hotels, restaurants, spas, private residences, lounges, retail and museums, across Europe, Asia and The Middle East, demonstrating a cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary capability to meet the design requirements of any project.

FG stijl interior architecture
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.
