New Arrival: welcome Jachthuis Sint Hubertus!

Country Residence Museum Jachthuis Sint Hubertus, the former residence of the Kröller-Müllers, is one of the most iconic buildings in the Netherlands. It was designed by the renowned architect H.P. Berlage, completed in 1920 and located inside the National Park De Hoge Veluwe. The famous Kröller-Müller Museum, designed by architect Henry van de Velde, opened its doors there in 1938.

New Arrival: welcome Hohenhof!

Karl Erst Osthaus was a real visionary. Unfortunately he died at the age of 47, but before that he commissioned the Belgian architect Henry van de Velde in 1906 to design his family home in Hagen as a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. The interior design was created as a unified whole and is still in original condition. In addition, furniture and craftwork by Henry van de Velde is on display.

Icon at Risk: saving the Villa dei Direttori in Mantua

The ‘Villa dei Direttori’, (directors’ villa) designed by architect Renzo Zavanella in Mantua in the 1930s, is one of the best examples of Italian ‘nautical rationalism’. Designed to house the families of the two directors of the largest sugar refinery in the Genovese Schiaffino, it is now in a serious state of neglect that is likely to become irreversible in short time.
