After 4,5 years we had to leave our beloved studio at the Assendelftstraat…..:(

But we found a super cool new place and are now part of a bigger collective! We moved to the Coolhaven 558, immediately on the waterside and luckily still in the city center:)

Together with some other creatives (fashion designer, photographer, music studio’s, dance studio and more we form the Cool Coolhaven Collective.

Once we are installed and after the Covid-19 you are welcome to visit us!
