A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT US
The Green House is a creative studio for design, photography and interior styling. Our motto is 'keep it simple, honest and real', and we aim to inspire our clients to do the same with their design choices.
We work hand in hand with our clients to capture the essence of the brand, diving into their world in order to fully understand their vision. We translate their ideas into strong, sustainable design assets: creative work that not only fits the brief for now but also stands the test of time.
A SELECTION OF OUR CLIENTS
Brechtje Baars studied Fashion & Branding at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). After graduating she spent several years working for couture designer Ilja Visser before moving to Berlin to join the graphics department at e-commerce giant Zalando. Before long she was promoted to Art Director, responsible for designing campaign concepts for 15 countries. Extremely organised and highly creative, Brechtje has all-round, international experience.
When she crossed paths with Leonoor it was a 'meant to be' moment. Sharing a similar aesthetic taste but still different enough to challenge each other, Brechtje and Leonoor see eye-to-eye on their vision for The Green House, motivating one another to reach the next level of creativity.
Leonoor Verplanken graduated with a Masters in Communication at the University of Amsterdam, where she learnt about branding and communication strategy. Wanting to specialise in the creative side of branding and design, Leonoor then studied at the Junior Academie before joining Amsterdam-based lifestyle and beauty brand Marie-Stella-Maris as an all-round creative, overseeing branding, concept, design, photography and content creation.
Leonoor's camera has been by her side since she was young, capturing all the beauty that life has to offer - from daily moments to carefully-considered campaign shoots.
It took just one coffee for Leonoor to decide she wanted to join forces with Brechtje. Immediately recognising that their skills, strengths and experiences complemented one another, they established The Green House and the adventure began.
The Green House is part of a creative hub that shares a passion for good design and sustainability. Located in Amsterdam Oud-West, our studio is like a small greenhouse; surrounded by plants, ideas sprout from tiny seeds in a beautifully light space thanks to the glass ceiling.
We share the same roof with Strawberry Earth, Kim van Dongen, The Karma Brothers, Erik Grootscholte, Lizet Deutekom, Christiaan Maats, Jochem Duyff and more.
Next to us there’s Berry, a cosy café that’s more like our living room. Serving delicious coffees, juices and sandwiches made from local, organic products, Berry is one of our favourite hotspots in Amsterdam. Why not stop by for a chat?
