Van Nelle

The Van Nelle factory produced tobacco, tea and coffee. In 1927-1930 the architects Brinkman & Van der Vlugt built a new building which offered space for all their activities. The building was used until the Van Nelle company was swallowed by their competitor Douwe Egberts. In 1995 the new owners stopped the production in the premises. In 1998 the factory was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. Today it houses high notch office space.
