|Discussion||Hubertus House Commentary
"Van Eyck's work lies in line with that important tradition of humanitarian modernism central to 20th century Dutch architecture. The 6-storey Hubertus House cannot be viewed in isolation, although its social success is clearly a result of the way its particular design was carried out. It is concerned with the spirit and the establishment of a comfortable scale for the building of this type and sizean open 'home' for single parents and their childrenwith the creation of a non-stressful environment, in a block that seems to say 'house'. Like so many of Van Eyck's schemes, it was a cooperative effort with contributions from Hannie van Eyck and Theo Bosch in particular."
