How it al began…
Heemskerk Bloemisten has been located in the Archipel district in The Hague since 1939. The mansions, woodlands, parks, town houses and the Peace Palace give the Archipel a stately and even regal appearance. The district lies in blooming and flourishing surroundings. Mr Heemskerk established his flower shop on Bankastraat more than 75 years ago. At the time, the shop was still known as Jac Heemskerk. Thanks to its magnificent location, the good and consistent quality of flowers, and his expertise, the shop soon grew into one of The Hague's finest florist's. Mr Heemskerk provided flowers for loyal customers all over the world.
Like father, like son
Around 1980, his son Arjan took over the shop. Arjan had considerable business acumen and he made the shop one of the top five florists in The Hague. From that moment, the shop also gained many major customers. Heemskerk Bloemisten is thus a supplier to embassies, law firms and government institutions to this day. Arjan Heemskerk gave the shop a thorough facelift in 2000.
A wonderful asset to the street
The shop's beautiful and luxurious appearance is still a major asset on Bankastraat. The premises, constructed around 1900, holds its own against the rest of the mansions in the Archipel district. Our green outer appearance makes us an integral part of the streetscape.
