Boot House Or ING Headquarters In Amsterdam

  Today we'll show you the Amsterdam headquarters of ING or a "boot-house" how it's usually called due to its shape. It is one of the most expensive buildings in the Netherlands? it was built in 2001 under the project of Meyer en Van Schooten studio.
The building of the bank was designed in a way that none of its walls forms a straight angle with a neighbouring one. The architects rejected the idea of a box shape peculiar to most office buildings. Critics compare it with a giant sand castle and its fans correlate it with the Inca architecture. The main motif of its decoration - flowing water. Sounds of waterfalls and fountains make a calming effect. In the yard there are many gardens.

The building stands on piles 9-12,5 m high.

Gate to the underground parking lot.

Cosy and light, many plants inside.
