The Schilderwijk neighbourhood in The Hague used to be the largest working-class neighbourhood in Europe. The maximum number of houses was once built there for the minimum outlay.

In addition, as in urban areas like this, there is an enormous influx of immigrants from all parts of the world. What is life like in the country's most densely populated building site?
