In 1964 Aldo and Hannie van Eyck moved from Amsterdam to Loenen, where they acquired a 17th-century construction along the River Vecht. The rehabilitation of the house, where they lived until 1999 and 2018, conserved the fundamental elements of the historic building, transforming its interior. In this house, made from within, lay their collection of vernacular art, models, books and everyday objects. It is one of the few projects by Van Eyck that has remained hidden and unpublished, a place where we could find most of his architectural concepts applied. This research, developed in the framework of a phD, proposes an analysis of the house from six hypothesis, six concepts illustrated by six new graphic documents made for the occasion. After all, this house is only an interior, but it is precisely in the interiors of Van Eyck where we could find its most inspiring peculiarities, the true core of his architectural and vital proposal.
