Rietveld Houses Erasmuslaan Utrecht

**COMING SOON**
This housing block by Gerrit Rietveld was originally right in view of the famous Rietveld-Schroder 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.
This is a limited three scene version of the full 360-degree project.

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.

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
