Geeke lives with her husband Jacques and 2 dogs in an apartment in a former school building from 1929 in Haarlem. The building consists of 10 apartments with a large communal garden. The apartment is bright due to the high ceilings and huge windows. The layout is Geeke’s design and much of the furnishings are made or collected by her husband. He collects and restores vintage lamps and furniture. He also knows how to transform an IKEA cupboard into a beautiful designer cupboard. The interior is really a mix of them together. She puzzles about the layout, practical storage spaces and he provides the nuances. In the coming years, the residents of the old school want to make the building more sustainable, they already have purchased solar panels together.
