House in Alblasserdam

This house is a design that Van Eesteren made for his parents in Alblasserdam. They wanted to move because Van Eesteren’s brother was getting married and would be moving into the parental home. By the time the design was finished, his parents had already moved to The Hague and at the request of his father, he then drew up plans for a house in the exclusive residential area of Zorgvliet. Neither design was carried out because his parents finally decided to buy an existing house. Van Eesteren, however, was asked to design a garage for this house, the drawing for which he sent to Van Doesburg, whom he asked to make a colour design ‘that would shock the entire neighbourhood.’
