What is “27 Huis”?

After much brainstorming and discussions for the right name to represent our agency which would focus on both Dutch and Expat clients, we found ourselves outside of our office staring at our building where we saw "27 HS", our address (on the Nieuwe Leliestraat), on the door. In Amsterdam, "HS" or "Huis" is used to represent the ground floor of a building. With Huis/House sounding very similar in both Dutch and English and being so excited and proud of our new office and its location, our name was found!
