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 on 9 floors, for singles and small households, and has many modern collective conveniences for the era, like laundry and drying space in the basement and storage space for bicycles and baby carriages.
