The Van Nelle Factory is an imposing building of inestimable cultural and historical value, having the status of a nationally protected monument and being included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. From the outside the building is monumental, but inside it is innovative and modern. It was designed around the concepts of light, air and space, inspired by the 'new building' philosophy of the past. The transparent architecture and the abundant windows turn the building into a work of art. The tea-room on the roof and the diagonal overhead walkways are characteristic elements. For many years these buildings were factories producing coffee, tea and tobacco. In the mid 1990s the factories were closed, and renovation work started in 1998. Nowadays they house inspiring offices and business workspaces for the creative sector, hence its modern name: Design Factory. They also offer an attractive location for events, conferences, seminars, movie and theatre productions and photo-shoots.
