    Description :

    The Chabot Museum in Rotterdam has occupied a monumental example of Nieuwe Bouwen architecture, the functionalist Dutch arm of the International Modern style, since 1993.

    The white corner villa overlooking the Museumpark is a design from 1938 by the architects Baas and Stokla.

    Characteristic features of the house include the naturally lit spaces, the openness towards the garden and the unique views of the Museumpark’s surroundings.
