First-hand experience is the best way to see what the buzz at DesignLab is all about. Let's get in touch, and see what we can work on together.

How to find us

Due to construction at the Gallery on April 10th 2023, there will be some changes in how you may access DesignLab.

BY BIKE: The bicycle parking area at Designlab will be relocated on 27 March, for this purpose we will temporarily put the bicycle racks on parkeerplaats De Achterhorst. 

BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Plan your route to bus station Westerbegraafplaats/UT. Use 9292OV for arrival and departure times. Once you have arrived at the bus station, enter ‘Pinetumweg, Enschede’ on your Maps application. Walk along the Pinetumweg until you spot the entrance of DesignLab on your left. Press the famous red button at the pole with the intercom, and walk up to DesignLab.

BY CAR: We recommend you use Drienerlolaan 5, Enschede as your navigation address. From there, follow the P4. Most parking spots are available there. The recommended route is marked on the map. From the parking spot, walk towards the Pinetumweg. Find the pole with the intercom at the entrance of DesignLab, press the red button, and walk up to DesignLab.
