Clever solutions     ———

Rietveld's ideal house was spacious, simple and functional. He came up with all kinds of clever solutions to achieve this.

One such idea involved sliding walls on the first floor. By day, this was an open space, but in the evening, the Schröder family could split it up into three separate rooms. There was one room for the daughters, another for the son, and a living room with a table and stove, giving everyone some privacy.
