Really beautiful modern house of the '30's, now a museum. Showing the style of 'Nieuwe Bouwen' and what life was like with the Sonneveld-family. You want to immediately move in and stay as the house is ready to receive you as it's next occupant. The house cooperates with artists now and then who make you see the house with new... More

If you are interested in architecture and design this is a must see. Build in 1933, Sonneveld house is a great example of the modern movement/international style in architecture. The interior design (Gispen) is a perfect match with the architectorial design. One of the few remaining historical examples. Everything is authentic. Very pretty and interesting. Audiotour available. Build on request... More

The amazing thing about the place is knowing it was built in 1933! And has all the luxury of modern day living: heating, toilets, massage showers, bathrooms... Luckily the place did not get destroyed in WW2. The audio guide is also very good. To bad the floor is covered in mirrors, it is a modern art exposition until September. Tickets... More

Well preserved house entry to which includes the Nieuwe Instituut across the road. Interesting but nothing to get the heart beating fast.

Located a short walk from Central Station (and clearly signposted) this is a Le Corbusier-like town house inspired by the desire to create a living space which blurred the boundaries between the interior and exterior through the medium of as much natural light as possible entering the house but also making the most of the space inside. The tour is... More

Sonneveld house is a fantastic experience. It’s thought provoking and intriguing. I’m now an advocate of the design of living space. I was so overwhelmed by this visit that (had I the money) I would create a living space on a similar theme. Once you’ve seen this place you’ll question house building and design from now on. Access to the... More

nice way to spend a few hours....apart from the architecture, it is a perfect look back at life in the 1950's...
