WELCOME TO L.O.F.T. THE LAND OF FREE THOUGHT!

We could not have imagined that the former reformed Christian church Jeruzalem, that was built in the heart of the Vruchtenbuurt in 1936 would someday become the bearer of our dream to create a small society somewhere… a piece of land filled with great ideas, feel good food, art and a bunch of activities to give us the space to grow together. In the society we currently all live in, besides the smart phones we seem to filter the world with, we also have less and less time to say “Hellooo” to one another… And so little time to eat well. We’re always in a hurry to get from one place to another that we forget the most important destination of all, the place within! Our dream is to get there, a little closer every day. We love travelling and we know that what really makes a journey worthwhile is to share it with other travellers. So here we are, ready to hear about your journey and to share ours with you.
