Malvert is a neighborhood in the Dukenburg district, in Nijmegen, which largely consists of rental homes, low-rise buildings and flats. The original CIAM ideology has been revived for the restructuring of this neighborhood.
The original city plan for Malvert is based on CIAM, an international platform that left a major mark on architecture in the first half of the 20th century. One of the main ideas that emerged from CIAM was the “Functional City”, in which living, working and recreation are separated from each other.
Unfortunately, Malvert’s spatial structure did not match the social development, and the neighborhood fell into disrepair. By demolishing seven of the twelve blocks, the construction was connected to the adjacent residential area. This also created connections with the canal and the adjacent homes. New residential blocks, a care facility and the renovation of the existing buildings resulted in the redevelopment and revitalization of the district.
The existing green zones have also been redesigned and now serve as playgrounds, seating areas and walking paths. This creates a friendly and safe living environment. A revitalization of CIAM’s original architectural philosophy, but with all modern living requirements included. This makes Malvert a neighborhood where people enjoy living.
