Besides his iconic Schröder House, very little is known about the roughly 100 houses Rietveld designed and built during his career. These houses are characterised by light and space, and sobriety is a basic principle in his approach. Only a small group of intellectual clients commissioned him to design an avant-garde residence. Photographer Arjan Bronkhorst went in search of these unknown houses, photographing their interiors and residents, while authors Willemijn Zwikstra and Marc van den Eerenbeemt explored archives and interviewed current residents about living in a Rietveld house.
