Van Nelle Fabriek

Previously a tea, coffee & tobacco factory. Designed by archiect Van der Vlugt with pioneering ergonomics in mind and use of ample natural light for the workers. Famous architect Le Corbusier decribed the factory as "the most beautiful spectacle of the modern age" back in the 30's. Nowdays the factory is renamed Van Nelle Design Factory and hosts businesses in the creative sector.
