His architecture also capsulated the era in his design of the Schroder House. It was built in 1924 for Mrs. Truus Schroder-Schrader and her three children. She was very particular with what she wanted her house to be like and rejected the original plans. She wanted a house that had few walls and seemed to blur the lines of outside and inside. Once the building was made, she lived in the house until her death in 1985. It has since been restored and now serves as a museum. One of her children grew up to be one of the first female architects in the Netherlands. No doubt she was inspired in part by Rietveld.
