The beginning of the Gallery

“Anything you can imagine, you can create”.

This is the core belief of Simone. In addition to a management career, building a house herself was always one of her dreams.

After more than 20 moves in almost 40 years she searched for a unique house where she could ‘root’. In 2018 she came to the Sancta Maria estate by coincidence and fell in love with the singing birds and the rustling tree leaves. The estate has similarities to the Veluwe, where she grew up. Most of the pavilion houses had already been sold. This peaceful house immediately caught her attention, while other buyers had left the house behind due to its large size and minimal daylight. These challenges attracted her and sparked her creativity.

She bought the 520m2 property, made plans and started working with a contractor to renovate it. After a couple of months of construction, the house was not finished and the budget was tight. “I’m going to finish it myself,” Simone decided. She taught herself jobs and she went to work on the weekends. Pouring her own floors, fixing ceilings and walls, designing furnitures by re-using second hand items. She created architraves instead of doors, build her own bed from steel and created four meter long lamps.

The result is there. An attractive house with big walls, perfect for beautiful, inspiring, innovative art. This is how ART[s] Gallery Simone Jansen was created. Her passion for art, crafts, interior design and architecture all come together. Artists are given a unique place where they can exhibit their works. Art lovers can visit the works in a beautiful place.

HAPPY CLIENT, HAPPY US

“Sometimes your eyes come across unique pieces that are meant to be. I had that experience during ART[s] Gallery Simone Jansen’s opening exhibition. I saw a textile work of  Marianne Kemp and combined it with a black work of Laura de Wilde. The combination was love at first sight and I knew right there and then: “this is what I’m looking for!” Really happy to enjoy two works in my living room”.

ARTIST IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Lieke Anna is a storytelling artist from Breskens, a small fisherman’s village in the South of The Netherlands. As a self-portrait artist she visualizes strong emotions of people, never shy to touch darkness and power at the same time. With a degree in Visual Communication, Lieke has been working as an artist ever since. After spotting Lieke’s work online we were drawn to her storytelling capabilities straight away. Her openness, sparkling energy and flexibility made it possible to select and install six works in our gallery in just six weeks. Now ready to be enjoyed by art lovers!

“The tranquility in combination with the depth, which you see when you look closer, immediately touched me when I saw this work by Ans de Kruyf. Her great work fits perfectly in our dining room. Her art is present without being dominant. From every angle you see something different and the work blends in with the environment. I’ve been looking for sincere art for years. I found that ART[s] Gallery Simone Jansen in Noordwijk. I will definitely come back for the selection of works and for the warmth and advice of the owner of the gallery. I am curious what I will discover there in the coming years.”

Building an Elegant contemporary home 

Characteristic architecture, monumental views and an impressive nature at the estate; Simone’s house is one of a kind.  The place showcases character because of the beautiful beam construction and her heights of 4 and 6,5 meters. A minimalistic interior was created, so that authentic elements come into their own. From a raw, uninhabitable historic premise to an elegant contemporary home that exudes peace and serenity. The creative collaboration with NAMO Interiors has ensured a unique end-result. 

The house is published in the Contemporary Living Yearbook 2021, a hardcover book with 25 private residences by famous architects and interior designers from all over the world.

Spacious Loft above the Art[s] Gallery

The top floor of the house is a gem of itself. Simone put in many hours to transform this 130 m2 floor into a spacious Loft with six beds, kitchen, dining, living room, separate toilet, bathroom and a private entrance. During the annual exhibitions, the Loft will be added to the gallery to show more art works in various homely environments.

The Loft was published in the magazine Scandinavian Living in 2020.
