What Houzz contributors are saying:

Turning the corner to the back of the house, we can see how the planes shift relative to one another (the interlocking of the small balcony and perpendicular guardrail, for example) and how the planes extend in all directions. The exterior is not just a two-dimensional Mondrian-style work enlarged to a building; it is a complex layering that resolves the interaction between interior and exterior, which is no longer seen as a simple and distinct separation. Yet the inside is where the house's complex qualities really come into play.
This house design became the architectural manifesto of the modernist De Stijl movement. Were Schröder’s neighbors bemused, confused or appalled by this abstract young upstart?More about the Rietveld Schröder House
