Architect Cornelis Hendrik Peters built Magna Plaza in a neo-Gothic style, a mixture of Gothic and romantic elements of which the Parliament buildings in London are an example. In 1992 this beautiful building was added to the list of ten most valuable monuments of the city of Amsterdam. Four renowned architects were invited to submit a renovation plan, the first indoor shopping and lifestyle centre in the heart of the city.
The former post office in Amsterdam is a beautiful building. The imposing facade between the Palace on Dam Square and the Nieuwe Kerk has been a familiar sight for almost a century, first as the main post office and now as a shopping centre of international stature.
Two open spaces next to the existing central hall create a spacious atmosphere from the basement to the roof, a feeling that is reinforced by a sea of natural light that enters through the large domed glass roof.
