The striking white villa was designed in 1938 by architect G.W. Baas, who worked many years for the renowned architects Brinkman & Van der Vlugt (known for the monumental Van Nelle Factories, the Feijenoord Stadium and the Sonneveld House in Rotterdam). Baas left the completion to architect L. Stokla when he was appointed as the building coordinator of the Kröller- Müller Museum at the Hoge Veluwe.
The villa in modernist style was initially built as a private residence for the Kraaijeveld family. Distinguishing features of the house are light and airy spaces, a typical openness to the garden and a unique view of the Museumpark and its surroundings. A visit to the homely, light and elegant Chabot Museum combines modern art, architecture and history.
