General description

Hilversum East is a valuable area for the identity of the city as a residential center in a green environment. It has a special urban structure with valuable housing complexes and special buildings. With examples of early public housing, a few workers' complexes from the 1920s and a large number of homes for the middle class from the 1930s, the area offers an overview of how Hilversum grew in the first half of the twentieth century. The post-war construction of the Kamrad is a further development of Dudok's ideas about the termination of the city, which formed the basis for the special interweaving of the city and nature with which the greenery penetrates deep into the district.
