    Description :

    The house on Jongkindstraat was built in 1928–32 for J. Sonneveld and the house on Mathenesserlaan in 1931–33 for Dr. H.J. Bouve. Both houses had large programs, including office space, and this combined with small sites to impose a fairly vertical parti for both. In the Sonneveld House, this is handled in a flat-surface, Corbusian way, but the Bouve House uses rows of deep balconies and a top-floor window arrangement.
