Rietveld Houses Erasmuslaan Utrecht

This housing block by Gerrit Rietveld was originally right in view of the famous Rietveld-Schröder house. It is now separated by a highway. It’s a wonderful example of Rietveld’s development and adaption of “Nieuwe Bouwen” style.

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.

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.

Van Nelle Factory, Rotterdam
