The restaurant is located in Huize Frankendael, where the Merkelbach family used to live just beyond the city. Since then, the city has overrun it and what was one beyond the city limits is now inside. Whomsoever eats at Restaurant Merkelbach, dines with the family. It is an exceptional place where people meet each other in a homely ambience. Studio Groen+Schild's interior helps to foster this homely feel among the guests. The architects selected a timeless design that seamlessly matches the surroundings. They used contrasts to accomplish this; hints in the original yellow ochre and flower colours that abound in the garden. Incorporating the outside with the inside and the old with new.
