Truus Schröder-Schräder's stair post and handrail/banister in the Rietveld Schröder House. (photo©Lucien den Arend)
The stair post still showed the mark of the dweller of the house. The wear, or use, of the house was a human factor which goes away with a renovation. I would have liked to see some of these qualities preserved. I visited the house again at the end of the nineties, wearing the compulsory blue shoe covers, everything immaculate and new; it was like walking inside a work of art in a museum - not a dwelling at all.
