Van Nelle Fabriek

 

This is the feelgood space of:
Juriaan van Meel

And this is why:

The ‘Van Nelle’ factory is a master piece of Dutch architecture that has proved to be functional over time. Once it was a factory for tea and tabacco. Now it accommodates small companies from the design sector. Inside you can still feel the light and ‘airy’ atmosphere that was so exceptional at the time when the factory was built. I admire the building because it has 'character'. Character is a quality that is hard to grasp, but it is certainly a quality that is not often found in new buildings. Buildings like this (coverted warehouses, factories, etc.) should get more attention from both the academic and professional world to tease out design principles that help to improve new design.
