Royal Palace of Amsterdam

Design of website for the Royal Palace of Amsterdam. The palace has been painted and photographed hundreds of times and in all periods since its existence. I wanted to show this by starting the homepage with all these different forms of the exterior of the palace. The images create the grid of the site. When you click on an image you enter the palace. The other images go to the background, but appear again on mouse-over.

The Amsterdam Royal Palace is one of three palaces used by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix. It is the venue for State Visits, the Queen’s New Year receptions and other official functions, including the annual presentation of the Erasmus Prize, the Silver Carnation, the Royal Awards for Painting and the Prince Claus Prize.When the Palace is not in use by the Queen or members of the Royal Household, it is open to the public.
