Andriessen Room (Grachtenmuseum)

This is a one scene only project, to show and zoom in to the murals that were created in 1776 by Jurriaan Andriessen, part of the Amsterdam Grachtenmuseum. In 1663, merchant Karel Gerards commissioned Phillip Vingboons – then one of Amsterdam’s leading architects – to design and build this house.

Huis Van Ravesteyn, Utrecht

Railway architect Van Ravesteyn designed this detached house in 1932 for his own family. He wanted to build a house with modest means in which it was pleasant to live and work.
This is a limited three scene version of the full 360-degree project.

Bolwoningen (sphere houses), Den Bosch

Less famous but just as experimental as the Rotterdam Cube Houses, these bolwoningen (sphere houses) were designed in the seventies, and built in 1984. In this 360 degree project you can have a unique look inside!

Thomaskerk (Brutalism) Amsterdam

A true Brutalist surprise hidden by a modest brick facade. Walking past, you would never expect the interior to be this spectacular with grey walls and exposed concrete surfaces.

Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam

The full official 360 degree project of the new Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, designed by MVRDV. It is famous for the shape, the mirrored facade and painting storage formed like a Chinese fan. In this 360 degree project you can experience it all in no less than 36 scenes!

Valley (MVRDV) Amsterdam

Walk all over the MVRDV designed residential and office building in Amsterdam. You can get a good impression of the protruding apartments and terraces between.

Huis Sonneveld, Rotterdam

A great example of Het Nieuwe Bouwen, closely related with the Van Nelle Factory, with a modern but surprisingly warm colored interior.
The house can be visited, this 360 project is used there in VR mode for people unable to access the stairs.

Van Nelle Factory, Rotterdam

Soon after this building was completed Le Corbusier described this iconic factory as “the most beautiful spectacle of the modern age”. Machine rooms, corridors and even a glass bridge are among the many 360 degree scenes of this project you can see.

Dominicanen Bookstore, Maastricht

The “most beautiful bookstore in the world” (according to The Guardian). Built into an old Dominican church. Zoom into the paintings between the vaults!

Hilversum Town Hall (Dudok)

Town Hall Hilversum (Raadhuis Hilversum) is a true “Gesamtkunstwerk”. In this 360 degree project, with all interior details visible, it can be experienced as such.

Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam

Perhaps Berlage’s most famous building. Discover elements of Neo Roman architecture, as well as Jugendstil, and early examples of Het Nieuwe Bouwen and Amsterdam School. See many spaces even up to the bell tower.

Openluchtschool (Open Air School), Amsterdam

A great example of “Nieuwe Bouwen”, still functioning as a school. The building is very transparent and positioned to catch maximum sunshine. Whenever possible kids would get their classes at the balconies.

Sanatorium Zonnestraal, Hilversum

The estate Zonnestraal is a former sanatorium in Hilversum, the Netherlands. The building is a very strong example of the Nieuwe Bouwen and designed to let in maximum sun and air. It has very thin concrete floors and steel framed windows

Radio Kootwijk

A former broadcasting station that looks brutalist outside, but has many art-deco elements on the inside. The design is inspired by Egyptian sphinxes. The 360 project includes the water tower.

Kubus Woningen (Cube Houses) Rotterdam

No standard furniture fits into these houses designed in the seventies. One of the houses is now a museum where the interior can be seen, it’s also included in this 360 degree project.

Markthal (MVRDV Market Hall) Rotterdam

An MVRDV designed residential and office building with a market hall underneath and a spectacular decoration.

Het Schip – Amsterdamse School

(1919-1921) A great example of Amsterdam School Architecture. Designed by Michiel de Klerk and built as social housing to elevate the working class.

Sterre der Zee Basilica, Maastricht

Started in times when Roman architecture was still in swing this 11th/12th century church in Maastricht is one of the oldest surviving buildings in The Netherlands. The interior is known for its special atmosphere and extreme darkness.

Jeruzalem Kerk (Jerusalem Church), Amsterdam

The “Jeruzalem Church” is a great example of the style of the Amsterdam School. The church forms a harmonious unity with the environment in which it is built, not just in style, but also because it’s directly connected to the adjoining housing block.

Dominicus Church, Amsterdam

A true “hidden gem”, easily ignored church by Cuypers, who got more fame by designing the Amsterdam Central Station and Rijksmuseum. Unassuming on the outside, but pleasant and clever designed, making the most of the unusual small plot on the narrow Amsterdam alleys.

Oude Kerk (Old Church), Amsterdam

The Oude Kerk (Old Church) is Amsterdam’s oldest building. It was founded circa 1213 and consecrated in 1306. It stands in De Wallen, now Amsterdam’s main red-light district.
