The architect Van Ravesteyn designed this villa in 1932, where he lived with his family and worked on many assignments. His love for ornaments and curved lines was not always appreciated by his modernist colleagues. A lot of his designs did not survive but this beautiful one does!

Living and workingspace in one design.

A lot of the iron work and the aluminium plinths were made in the workplace of the Dutch railway company for which he worked as well.

The lower part of the ceiling with integrated lamps is due to the desk at which Van Ravesteyn was working in the evenings.

Exploring the house

Sober and functional yet warm and curvy. This description fits the house as well.

The love for pastels en de round lines makes the house stand out if you compare it to what his colleagues were designing. Think of Rietveld and you will see the difference.
Come and see for yourself!

The entry and kitchen. Sobriety and functionality.

Making a virtue of a necessity

The architect built the house upon a triangular lot. He did not design a traditional house but a unique customized home and working place.

Maarten Van Rossem over Van Ravesteyn

Van Rossem fietste al honderden keren langs het woonhuis van Sybold van Ravesteyn. Eindelijk kan Maarten eens een kijkje nemen in het zelfontworpen huis waar de architect het grootste deel van zijn leven woonde.
