About the Van Nelle Fabriek

The Van Nelle Fabriek started as a flagship of industrial Dutch architecture. The first daylight factory in Europe. A paragon of functionalism. A structure of concrete instead of brick. With columns instead of load-bearing walls. With its steel and glass facade and work floor bathing in ​​natural light, the building was designed to energise the workers.

In 2002, the structure was renovated and transformed into a sustainable building. Rotterdam’s national design icon was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2014. The era of coffee, tea, and tobacco may be over, but today, the Van Nelle Fabriek is a symbol of vitality and modernity – a legendary venue for events and presentations.
