Rebuilding and designing has started.
Kalkmarkt 1 is centered on the corner of the Prins Hendrikkade and the Oude Schans. We are the proud new owners of this beautiful old Amsterdam building. Just a week ago we started rebuilding the interior and it's already starting to look like a tattoo shop. If you walk by, you will merely see the gorgeous entrance since we are keeping the interior secret for as long as it is being designed. Tattoo parlour Het Ruyterhuis is going to house tattoo artists Ben de Boefand Etienne Blackbeard. Meanwhile we are on the look-out for other talented artists who could fit in the team.
Word has spread, Dutch fashion designer Sjaak Hullekes is designing Het Ruyterhuis. This celebrated designer won the Dutch Mercedez Benz fashion award in 2009 and owns his shop 'Sjaak Hullekes', located in the centre of Arnhem. He teamed up with Fred de la Bretonière for the brand's fall/winter clothing line for 2011.
Here are a few snapshots of the rebuilding. Stay tuned for the official invitation for the grand opening which will be published here.
