Villa Savoye

Le Corbusier

Poissy, France

1929

Possibly the architect's most characteristic work and certainly an icon of modernist design. This house uses its location as an essential part of the spatial experience, pulling carefully framed views into the experience of the interiors while inviting the grounds to flow below its floating mass which is supported upon fine, crisp white pillars.

Corbusier's clients on this project were wealthy and located their house deep within the French countryside. Free from the smells of town and traffic they enjoyed the air and aromas of the surrounding vegetation while the design of the house encouraged free air movement through its numerous windows and, of course,  across the vast plane of the flat roof.
