Sonneveld House

Located next door to Het Nieuwe Instituut, Sonneveld House is one of the best-preserved Functionalist houses in the world. The freestanding villa was designed in 1929 by architecture office Brinkman & Van der Vlugt for Albertus Sonneveld, a director of the Van Nelle Factory. The house is light and spacious, in keeping with the Modernist ideals of the time, with streamlined furniture and large windows offering views of the surrounding garden. During the tour, your guide will tell you about the house's history, pointing out interesting details.

A guided tour of Sonneveld House lasts an hour and costs €85 for a group of up to 15 people, excluding admission (tickets are available at the front desk of Het Nieuwe Instituut).
