Unité d’habitation Marseille, 1947-52. One of Le Corbusier’s most famous and influential works.. Also called Cité Radieuse or “Radiant City” which I quite like. Oh and can we just talk real quick about those ventilation stacks?! Yes, the ones that look like big beautiful sculptures? Much more to come on this one, but sometimes I’m just impatient about a photo 😬.

I don’t always post washrooms, but when I do I prefer Eileen Gray’s..

Villa E-1027, 1926-29. Eileen Gray, architect. - 🖤 fact: built for living with her lover Jean Badovici, the name E-1027 has quite a bit of significance. E for Eileen, 10 and 2 corresponding to the tenth and second letters of the alphabet; J + B and finally 7 for G. A code of something shared by the two at the time the Villa was built.. I was waiting to post our visit to my modernist dream by the sea as I need to sort through I can’t tell you how many photos, but something important is happening! The Cap Moderne Association has started a crowd funding campaign to continue the restoration of E-1027. If you want to contribute to the restoration and preservation of Eileen Gray’s legacy 👉🏼 indiegogo.com and 🔍 Eileen Gray.

Anyone who knows me (or has even come into brief contact with me) knows about my long time admiration for Eileen Gray. She could be called many things; designer, painter, photographer, architect..ARTIST. She was not one for the spotlight and fiercely fought to preserve her privacy. Her independence was important to her and her talent knew no bounds. She is an absolute inspiration for me so you can imagine my excitement when we were finally able to step into her world, if only for a little while. Modernist masterwork E-1027, architect Eileen Gray. 1/3.

Villa Noailles, 1923-27. Robert Mallet-Stevens, architect. ▫️ Commissioned by art patrons Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles as a summer villa, it is considered one of the more important works of modernist architecture overlooking the seaside town of Hyéres in southeastern France. During the roaring twenties the couple hosted many of the artistic elite. Interesting Fact Friday: Villa Noailles was a movie star with a very prominent role in Man Ray’s film Les Mystères du Château de Dé! For the love of Mallet-Stevens we saw this modernist gem, as it is once again a place for art and design. #malletstevens #villanoailles #modernmovement

Hands down the best lobby?! I can’t even call this a lobby.. another favourite chill space, and please don’t get me started on the wall lamps. @lesrochesrouges

About a door:
. Steel frame pivots on a central axis.
. 3 meters square.
. Weight approximately 2.3 tons.
. Clad in 16 enamel panels.
“16 huge panels...enamelled by my own hands, so facilitating the introduction of a new material into architecture.” his words, not mine. All I see is art. #corbusier

Notre Dame du Haut, Le Corbusier 1955.
“On the hill I had meticulously drawn the four horizons...it is they which unlocked, architecturally the echo, the visual echo in the realm of shape.” Le Corbusier’s words completely resonated when I finally got the chance to visit this architectural masterpiece. You can visit my site for the full story [link in bio] or stay tuned here for some highlights..

MID.  Mid week, mid reupholstering, mid moving all of the things around and believe it or not, sun in the middle of rainstorms. And another thing. I like this chair better without the cushions. True story.

“I often lay on that bench looking up into the tree, past the trunk and up into the branches. It was particularly fine at night with the stars above the tree.” - Georgia O’Keeffe 
For some reason I always think of this quote when I’m sitting out here. Last night I caught a glimpse of the sunset through the trees. Today is going to be a good one, I can tell. Have the best weekend you guys!
