Unique studios, where the characteristic ambiance of the original wooden beams has been preserved

Welcome to Studio Noorderfabriek, where the history of an old stove factory harmonizes with the vibrant energy of creativity. We have renovated this authentic space and transformed it into unique studios, while retaining the original wooden beams.

Each space exudes a new concept, born from our own imagination and design. This is more than just a space; it is a canvas where ideas come to life.

At Studio Noorderfabriek we share a family feeling, which translates into our collaboration. We work closely together and coordinate ideas to create spaces that are both distinctive and inviting.

The inspiring force behind Studio Noorderfabriek is Lola May. As a passionate photographer, Lola May started these studios with a unique vision. Her creative background and love for photography have inspired the spaces with a holiday feeling, so that you no longer need to go abroad for your productions.

A superbly beautiful location, and the owner of the studio is very cooperative. We hosted a baby shower there, and it was excellently organized, including decorations and lunch. Definitely recommended!

Charlotte Kronenburg

We recently photographed Kim Feenstra at Studio Noorderfabriek for a feature in the women’s magazine Flair. What a beautiful space! The lighting is exceptionally nice with natural light pouring in. There are various charming corners, and there is ample space for the team to move around. Lola warmly welcomed us and guided us through the studio. The images turned out beautifully.
