A unique mixture of old and new: this monumental 16th century house has been completely remodelled and combined with very modern new architecture. The house is well-known in the international architecture world, ‘you either love it or hate it’. If you love it, this house is the ideal family house in which working and living can be combined, or it can be used as a home in its totality.

The architect is Jan Pesman of architectural office Cepezed. The assignment was to create an open and flexible house, in which the use of every space can be flipped from working to living in an instant. The result: two buildings that are completely connected to each other by way of an open stairwell in the middle.

The full width of the ground floor is used as a combination living/office/workshop area, and the upper floors consist of the living area including a rooftop terrace with a unique view on the New Church (Nieuwe Kerk). All seven spaces are in open connection to each other. Additionally, there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a garden room. The bathrooms and kitchen are finished practically. The spacious, shaded, west facing city garden has a back entrance and two storages.

The Rietveld location is ideal, peaceful canal-side living with all facilities nearby. The greatest specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, and bars are situated in the popular northern part of the historic centre. The cosy ‘Doelenplein’ square is around the corner, and it is just a short walk to the Schie or the Delftse Hout via the Doelentuin. The train station and tram stops are at a 10 minute walking distance. FLOOR PLAN

Delft has a historical inner city. In Dutch history, Delft is mainly known because William of Orange resided in the city from 1572, and was murdered there in 1584. Ever since, members of the Dutch royal family are usually buried in Delft. Delft’s nickname is the ‘City of Princes’. Delft and the royal family have been connected for hundreds of years. It is the city where the ‘Father of the Fatherland’ William of Orange took refuge in 1572, after his flight from Breda, and where he was murdered twelve years later.

During the Golden Age, the economy, art and science were booming in Delft. The city played an important part in the establishment of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) in 1602, and became one of the six cities where the VOC located one of its Chambers. The world-famous Delft Blue emerged in 17th-century Delft, and famous Dutch masters such as Johannes Vermeer, Pieter de Hooch and Carel Fabritius lived or worked here. Delft was also an important city for scientific research during the Golden Age. Several scientists from Delft, including Hugo de Groot, Reinier de Graaf and Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, are still internationally acclaimed for their work.
