Schröder HouseYear built: 1924Architect: Gerrit RietveldLocation: Utrecht, NetherlandsVisiting info: Audio tours or guided tours availableMust know: At first glance Gerrit Rietveld's design for Schröder House is like a painting come to life. Traditional ideas of construction and enclosure, outside and inside, don't appear; in their place are lines, planes and splashes of color. These traits also apply to furniture that Rietveld designed, pointing to the synthesis that he and his Dutch contemporaries realized through the short-lived De Stijl ("the style") movement.Read more about the Schröder House
While the De Stijl group strove for the universal, the house that Rietveld designed for Truus Schröder-Schräder is highly personal. A widow with three children, the owner envisioned the house as a way to break from the bourgeois traditions of the 19th century. This was an idea she had cultivated before the death of her husband in 1923, with the renovation of an apartment also by Rietveld.Another personal characteristic of the house is the collaborative effort that resulted from her working with Rietveld on the interior's built-in furnishings. She is also credited with the idea for the moveable partitions inside, one of the house's most influential features.
Blurring the Line Between Inside and OutThe Rietveld Schröder House, Utrecht (1924), Gerrit Rietveld. This end-of-terrace house was designed for Truus Schröder-Schräder. It makes no attempt to relate to its redbrick neighbors. In contrast to them, its facades read as a collage of planes and lines that blur the distinction between the inside and outside.

Rietveld-Schroder House is perhaps my favorite house of all. First, I am struck by how new and radical the design feels, even today - and to think it was built in 1924! In its own way it achieves a a condition of lightness similr to Farnsworth House, but through totally different means. the interplay of solids and voids is interesting, playful and engages the viewer much like a complex puzzle. Their is an interplay of openness and concealement that makes one think of a playful flirtation. Finally. I have great admiration for the distribution and practicality of the interior spaces ) noy shoen here) . It is a house that was designed to be lived in, and utilized fully and efficiently.
