The NRE site is a small but lively and creative area just outside the city center. The site was founded in 1899 and has a long history as a former gasworks site. It has since undergone a number of transformations. Nowadays, it's a creative area where housing, work, and culture come together. The located design studios, such as Bart Hess, Nul Zes, Alissa + Nienke, and Make are absolute highlights.
