Rietveld Schröder House

History of the house

The Rietveld Schröder House was designed and decorated in 1924 by Gerrit Rietveld, commissioned by Truus Schröder who was deeply involved in the design and location of the house, because she had a clear vision on how she wanted to live there. The design follows the principles of the art movement De Stijl, which are characterised by using the primary colours and breaking open closed walls to create a seamless transition from inside to outside.

Visiting Rietveld Schröder House

The house is almost entirely present in its original state. Because of this, it is only possible to visit the house by a guided tour. A multimedia device leads you through the ground flour by yourself and at the top floor there is a guide present who can tell you even more about the house.
