Felix Meritis, Amsterdam

Felix Meritis was built according to a winning design by the architect Jacob Otten Husly for the new society called Felix Meritis established in 1776 for Music, Drawing, Physics, Commerce and Literature in the modern neo-classical style.The building itself was meant to exemplify the Enlightenment ideals the society stood for.

Amerpodia connects, programs and facilitates four cultural houses in the heart of Amsterdam. The Rode Hoed, Felix Meritis, De Nieuwe Liefde and the Compagnietheater each have their own identity and a different role. Together these houses want to make a substantial contribution to the cultural and social life of Amsterdam and far beyond. With an inspiring public program. But also with excellent facilities for events. By opening the doors for the business market, these venues find the necessary financial space to grow into leading cultural houses.
