Villa la Roche

Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret
 
location Paris
function private house, museum, gallery
contributed by Michael_Noordam

Villa La Roche was built as a home for Raoul La Roche, a Swiss banker and collector of avant-garde art. Among other things, the house would serve as a private gallery to display La Roche's extensive art collection. Built in a private Paris courtyard, the house had major constraints imposed by the site and its zoning restrictions, including a north orientation, existing trees and height and boundary limitations. Inside the building, to display the art, an ‘architectural promenade’ was made, a theme inspired by Le Corbusier's visit to the Acropolis in 1911 and repeated most strikingly in his Carpenter centre for the Visual Arts nearly forty years later. The promenade goes up and down staircases, leads you through tight spaces, in-between balconies, open surveys, down ramps and into a beautifully lit library. This idea of a spatial sequence was re-invented by many modern architects, after Le Corbusier.
