LE CORBUSIER HOME
- Le Corbusier
24, rue Nungesser et Coli, 75016 Paris, France
Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, was a Swiss-French architect, artist and writer, and one of the pioneers of what is now regarded as modern architecture.
Le Corbusier’s apartment in Paris' 16th arrondissement, where he lived with his wife Yvonne, his housekeeper, and his dog from 1934 to 1965, is open to the public and allows visitors to experience his home and his private studio where he would paint and write (Le Corbusier wrote over 40 books in his lifetime).
The apartment features unique details such as an unusually raised double bed so he and Yvonne would be able to see the view of Boulogne over the balcony railing.
The apartment is part of the modern glass building, The Immeuble Molitor, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site designed by Le Corbusier in the early 1930s.
