The White Lady, Eindhoven

The White Lady, Eindhoven (must see)

The White Lady, known also as the Witte Dame or the Philips Lighthouse is a building belonging initially to the Philips Company. The structure was built between 1928 and 1931 and its design was created by Dirk Roosenburg - a talented and well-known Dutch architect of that time. In the beginning, the company used the building for creating light bulbs. Around 1980 the structure was abandoned because Philips moved its manufacturing to an international level. Demolition was avoided and the building was exposed to a grand renovation process. Nowadays the White Lady houses diverse offices, shops and banks as well as the Philips Corporate Design offices, the MU gallery and the municipal public library.
