Le Corbusier, Weekend House (Casa per week end nei dintorni di parigi), France, 1935
The project was created in 1935 by Le Corbusier for M. Felix, the bachelor director of the Bank Societe Helfe. He was asked to make a house as unnoticeable as possible.
That is why The Weekend House was located on Paris suburbs. It was hidden among the trees, very small and only 2,5-metre-high building. The roof was made with quarrystone and reinforced concrete and covered by soil and grass.
Inside, there are whitewashed, stone walls, which are covered by plywood. There is also a ceramic floor and a fireplace made of red bricks.
There are some old photos available, which show finally finished interior of floodlit Nevada glass blocks. Everything is open to the garden. While being inside, everyone can feel the cooperation between the house and the landscape.
