This freestanding villa from 1933 is one of the best preserved Functionalist houses in the Netherlands. The modern interior is furnished with products designed by Gispen, Bart van der Leck and Royal Leerdam glassworks
Sonneveld House is one of the best-preserved houses in the Dutch Functionalist style. The villa was designed in 1933 by architecture firm Brinkman and Van der Vlugt for Albertus Sonneveld, a director of the Van Nelle Factory. The architects designed a total concept in which architecture, interior and furnishings are perfectly coordinated and reinforce one another. The Sonneveld House has its own website, containing practical information as well as information about the architecture, interior design and the Sonneveld family.
Art Rotterdam: The Drawings of Theo van Doesburg
The collection of artist Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931) at Het Nieuwe Instituut consists mainly of colour designs, architectural drawings and photo-mechanical reproductions on tracing paper. This important collection is being examined, conserved and, if necessary, restored to preserve it for the future. During Art Rotterdam, project leader Elza van den Berg and curator Eline de Graaf of Het Nieuwe Instituut discuss the ongoing research and restoration project.
