Huis Sonneveld is the perfect example of making Bauhaus architecture accessible - the house is beautifully renovated, the (free) audioguide gives a lively insight in the everyday life of the the Sonneveld family, including perspectives from their servants, as well as of the principles of Bauhaus architecture. I loved that one is allowed to open cupboards and drawers!

If you are interested in architecture and design of the period, then this is a must-see hidden gem. It is very well presented and we both loved it. Taking the (free) audio-tour is strongly recommended. The only minor downsides are that the music which is part of the colletion is quite loud and it was a shame we had no... More

Besides visiting one of those excellent new restaurants Rotterdam has to offer, I think this house, from the thirties, is the best cultural spot in Rotterdam! They have free Dutch and English audiotours and it is full of beautiful design and furniture, exactly as it was in 1933! It is right in the centre of the town, so I can... More

This was included in our museum ticket - we had not even heard about it - but like house museums so went over. It is amazing - very complete and original. The house was built before WWII but apparently suffered no damage and was inhabited by the family until 1955. Much of the furniture was custom designed for the house... More

This house is build in de Nieuwe Stijl and you can stroll around the house at will. Take the audio guide otherwise you won't really learn anything.

This house was a marvel to walk round, each element had been thought of by the architect, even the fabrics for upholstery were part of the house's narrative.

Sonneveld House is a prime example of Dutch prewar architecture and it kind of draws comparisons to other modernist gems such as Villa Tugendhat in Brno, Czech Republic or Villa Necchi Campiglio in Milan, Italy. Built in 1933 for a family of Mr Sonneveld, the director of equally spectacular Van Nelle factory. You can freely walk around the house, which... More

We nearly didn't go here but we really enjoyed seeing through the house. It cost 10 euros each which included the audio guide and apparently entry to the architectural museum, but we didn't have time. The Audio guide was great as was the subtitled film in the oh so modern under the house garage. Thus was ultra modern minimalist cutting... More

A modernist interior with colour, style and comfort. Most of the original furnishings are here and are quite wonderful. Amazing how much modern tech is anticipated e.g. speakers throughout the home connected to one turntable, in home telephone intercom and more.

The Sonneveld house was a true joy to visit. Located near the other large museums of Rotterdam, this white villa is a wonderful example of a Dutch architecture style that is almost erased from our cultural conciousness. Everything in the house is designed with a grand unifying idea in mind. The audio-tour that guides you around all the rooms, offers... More
