Jan De Jong House - Masterpiece Of The Bossche School
|Author||C. Voet ; H. De Haan ; K. Zwarts|
|Publisher||Architectura & Natura|
Designed by Dutch architect Jan de Jong as his private residence and workplace, the Huis Jan de Jong in Schaijk is a true example of the Bossche School of architecture, and has remained an icon of 20th-century residential modernism in the Netherlands ever since its completion in the late 1960s. Lovingly portrayed by architectural photographer Kim Zwarts, the house and its studio come alive in this book through refined qualities of light and natural shading. Caroline Voet and Hilde de Haan also contribute an essay in which they describe the house against its historical and stylistic backgrounds.
