Dit is een huis van lucht en light

Welcome in 1992: the year in which Utrecht based architect, designer and educator Mart van Schijndel moved into the house he designed for himself and crafted for an important part by himself as well. The house, patio's, interior design and furniture all bear his signature, which justifies regarding it as a Gesamtkunstwerk.


Since 1999 – the year in which the architect passed away – the Van Schijndel House was put on the Utrecht Municipal Historic Buildings Register as youngest monument. This does not mean that it is a house museum: the house is still a private home, but hosts cultural gatherings now and then that match the fields in which Van Schijndel was active as an architect who crossed disciplinary boundaries.


On this Mart van Schijndel website you will find detailed information about Van Schijndel's work and private residence in particular – from the renowned Delta Vase to the glass doors that run on silicon without hinges. The site is regularly updated with news and publications. Would you like to be kept informed about the activities of the Foundation Mart van Schijndel?

In the guest book we read:

'Experiencing the house in reality exceeds all expectations. It is incredibly beautiful. It is as if it has always been there; timeless between the autobiographical houses of Eames, Rietveld, Chareau, Cattaneo, Malaparte, and Eileen Gray, Mart's house is an unsurpassable experience.'
