This villa was three times modified by Oud. The first, with M. Kamerlingh Onnes, resulted in its use of round columns and white plasterwork in an 'African' exterior as desired by the client. Not entirely satisfied with this, Oud took his revenge in 1927 when extending the rear facade. The villa then acquired a more Cubist look, while its wooden window frames were replaced with steel. In 1931, the front facade, too, was extended by Oud. The villa has since been insensibly recast as a hotel.
