Upstairs, three bedrooms and a living room area around a central staircase and fireplace can be dynamically turned into a open big open space when opening wide up the sliding the walls. The house only has essential beautiful objects like the Red and Blue Chair, surprising pop-up tables like one next to a bed for only keeping water and a clock and beds that becomes sofas during the day, all for “an active attitude to life”. An exuberant experiment, a modern piece of architecture or just a home for a strong woman who knew exactly how she wanted to live, the Rietveld Schröderhuis is now a museum that can be visited with advanced reservation.
