The Sonneveld House Museum in Rotterdam is one of the best-preserved houses in the Nieuwe Bouwen style, the Dutch branch of the International School of Modernism. It was designed in the early 1930s by the architecture firm of Brinkman & Van der Vlugt. They were also responsible for the extraordinary interior, in close collaboration with W.H. Gispen.
