Piet Elling 1897–1962

Born in Utrecht in 1897, Piet Elling was an exemplary architect of the early modernist period, working largely in Amsterdam from the 1930s until his death in 1962. He designed and built various office and government buildings throughout The Netherlands, including many broadcast-related buildings in the Mediapark in Hilversum and a distinctive water tower in Amsterdam. Elling was also close with Bart van der Leck, collaborating with him on buildings, interiors and furniture designs beginning in the 1920s. One of their most famous collaborations, an embodiment of many of the modernist ideals De Stijl promoted, is the house they designed for van der Leck’s daughter and son-in-law, Villa Schöne in 1953 in Blaricum, North Holland.
