The Rietveld Schröderhuis is Utrecht’s second most famous building after the Dom Tower. The entire building was designed along the lines of the Dutch De Stijl artistic movement. The breaks in the facades form a flow transition from inside to outside, and the use of red, blue and yellow, combined with white, grey and black, are typical of this style. The widow Truus Schröder commissioned Utrecht architect Gerrit Rietveld to build the house close to Wilhemina Park in 1924.
