A.B. Henny House
11a Amersfoortseweg
Huis ter Heide

Robert van ’t Hoff, 1916

A rigidly symmetrical Wrightian house built of reinforced concrete. Born in Rotterdam in 1887, van ’t Hoff studied in England and traveled to the United States in 1913-14, where he visited Wright and many of his buildings, including Unity Temple, Midway Gardens and the Larkin Building. Returning to the Netherlands, he became a prominent member of the De Stijl group, working with Theo van Doesburg on several projects, although he actually built rather little. Eventually he moved back to England, where he died in 1979.
