Het Nieuwe Instituut: House Sonneveld

Museumhouse Sonneveld is one of the best-preserved houses in the Nieuwe Bouwen style. It was built in 1933 by design of the architecture firm, Brinkman & Van der Vlugt, also known for the Van Nelle Factory and Feyenoord Stadium.

Mr. Sonneveld, one of the directors of the Van Nelle Factory, commissioned the construction of the house.

A striking aspect of the house is the way Brinkman and Van der Vlugt designed not only the architecture but also the complete interior. For the furnishings, they selected mainly furniture and lights by the designer/manufacturer Gispen and fabrics by the firm Metz & Co.

Tours and/or visits can be arranged through the New Institute. All excursions can be combined with a visit to Sonneveld House through UrbanGuides.
