The new creative hotspot by the Waal.

The NYMA site will be a new vibrant part of Nijmegen. Full of hustle and bustle and activities for everyone inside and outside the city. Due to its location on the Waal, the area has a rich, layered history and its own industrial character. We worked on the development strategy and the development plan for the site. A route has been set out with the aim of transforming NYMA into an attractive place for visitors and entrepreneurs.

An organic development

The starting point is to develop the site in an organic way, leaving room for unknown, experimental, temporary developments but also more permanent ones. This makes the site scalable over time. The factory functions as an infrastructure for housing production, or the intricate network of users and visitors.

To steer this development on the right track, a spatial framework has been included in the development plan. Within this framework, the joint ambitions have been established by means of five core values. In this way NYMA becomes a development based on local joint knowledge and strength and the existing qualities are the starting point. Throughout all layers, connections, cooperation and the sharing of knowledge on a large and small scale are sought. The factory forms a growing flexible infrastructure to facilitate this development.
