Location: Van Nelle OntwerpFabriek

The former Van Nelle Fabriek (van Nelle factory), situated at the Schie River in Rotterdam, is one of the prime examples of  the Nieuwe Bouwen style of Modernist Architecture in the Netherlands. Originally built between 1925 – 1931 and designed by architect Leendert van der Vlugt. The building functioned for most of  the 20th century as a factory, processing coffee, tea and tobacco and later on cigarettes. The operation stopped in 1996. Currently it houses a wide variety of new media and design companies and is known as the Van Nelle Design Factory. It is a Dutch National monument as well as a designated World Heritage Site since 2014.
