The house is good example of pre-war Dutch Functionalism.
Designed in 1933 by Brinkman Van der Vlugt, the firm responsible for the Van Nelle factory. The villa is carefully restored to its original state both inside and out. Using then modern techniques of steel framing and concrete. The interiors play with strong colours, and each room has been constructed according to its intended use.
It was nice quiet day to visit the Sonneveld house. And it was free! Located in museum quartier, just next to NAI (Nederlands Architecture Institute), Boijmans Museum and Kunsthal.
