The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is a massive romantic confection, an art museum in the polychrome eclectic style of the late 19th century, designed by Pierre Cuypers and home to some of the most important art works in Dutch history.

Despite its overblown size, in recent years it had begun to find itself overwhelmed by increasing numbers of visitors, prompting the decision to renovate and restore the building. This task – the largest restoration of its kind ever undertaken – is currently nearing completion, to a design by Seville architect Cruz y Ortiz.

Over the years, the Rijksmuseum had, like many large art galleries of a certain age, accumulated various adaptations and alterations to the original design. “During the 20th century the building had been very badly treated,” says Antonio Ortiz, partner at Cruz y Ortiz. “It had become completely labyrinthine and difficult to understand.”

The architects made it their strategy to strip the building back to its original design, removing inserted walls and floors and restoring the galleries to their original size and decorative schemes, while also freeing up the two massive courtyards and the passageway that runs between them. As well as restoring, they would install the new programme that a contemporary museum requires: cafes, shops, auditoriums, children’s areas and so on.
