The Bergpolderflat (1934) is a style icon for the functionalist ‘Nieuwe Bouwen’architecture (modernist architecture) designed by architect Van Tijen, and the first gallery apartment flat building in the Netherlands. Prefabricating steel and concrete made the building affordable for people with low income. The Bergpolderflat has 72 apartments op 9 floors, for singles and small families, and has many modern collective conveniences for the era, like washing and drying space in the basement and storage space for bicycles and baby carriages.
