Koffiehuisjes

The Dutch City of The Hague is known for it’s slick politicians, international court, multicultural districts and international expats. It hosts it’s very own cultural and social blend, in the heart of which stand the city's famous "Koffiehuisjes" (coffeehouses) — small, primitively built shops, mostly to be found on the side of pedestrian paths.

Koffiehuisjes have provided the city with a social meeting ground ever since they populated Den Haag's streets, bridging the gap between the city's polarising inhabitants. However, they have been slowly disappearing from the city's streets since the beginning of the century. This is an attempt to record them and their visitors.
