Alfred Roth, De Mandrot House, Zurich, 1943-44 (View from google)
Alfred Roth, swiss architect, established his position within international Modernism by collaborating with Le Corbusier for example. He built this simple wooden house in 1943-1944 for Hélène De Mandrot and he even lived in it. It is also the type of house in Doldertal he developed in 1961 at the Fellowship home in Zurich, in which a certain idea of space, functionality and usability prevails. Therefore we can see in this interior design of the De Mandrot house really user-friendly furnitures and organisation of space.
It is also a very functional organisation, almost cubic or at least with a simple structure, flat roofed and plain.
