Restaurant De Tropen
The quiet furniture set up and variation in seating heights of the fixed furniture provide the space with a subtle dynamic. Building a bridge between the past and the present and incorporating the rich history of the Royal Tropical Institute, we provided the interior design of De Tropen with a large and centrally positioned dark green marble bar, filled with various impressive artifacts originating from the museum’s rich archive. In addition to connecting the interior with the building’s history, it was also key to connect the interior with the exterior and the famous “Ooster” park. Allowing the large terrace to act as an extension of the restaurant and entice visitors to explore the Tropical museum.
