The first two decades produced a prolific body of work including designing the interiors for brands such as Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental, Sheraton and Jumeirah, as well as five of Holland’s Michelin star restaurants. FG stijl’s designs can also be found in exceptional private residences around the world, landmark projects such as BMW Welt and the Albertina Museum, Vienna, and SUMMUM Lounge at the Private Jet terminal of Schiphol in Holland.

At present, the duo and their team are working on the design for Sir Nicolai in Hamburg, Hotel Market Street by Carlton in Edinburgh, (both members of Design Hotels).
Among the recent works of FG stijl, Mandarin Oriental in Munich will open this year after a renovation of all public areas and a signature Matsuhisu restaurant for Mr Nobu. Overall, 2015 was a successful year for FG stijl. Winning the prestigious PRIX VILLEGIATURE and the celebration of the 20th anniversary falls together nicely.
The duo is currently working on the first outside the USA CENTRIC hotel by Hyatt located on the man-made island of the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. FG is taking care of all public areas and the sister towers of hotel and apartments of 350 units in total. Furthermore, FG stijl has recently developed a bar and restaurant concept for EMAAR’s lifestyle brand ROVE, which soon will be rolled out in 10 upcoming hotels across Dubai.
