Robert Mallet Stevens was a french architect and designer that is considered one of the most influencial minds in french architecture in the period between the two wars.
This project, Villa Cravois is located in Croix, in the north part of France and was made for Paul Cravois, an industrial from the region. Villa Cravois is an elegant example of the modern architecture of the late 20s, where luminosity, hygiene and comfort are the key words. Here this is implemented in the concept in terms of a water system for hot and cold water also for cooking and drinking. The house was also provided with electric vacuum cleaning, air conditioning and towel heaters.
Besides the organisation of the building’s volumes in the best way possible for his customer, Mallet Stevens’ work also comprehends the design of the interior decoration and the gardenssurrounding.
