|Design and construction|
Villa Jeanneret and Villa La Roche are two houses in Paris, designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in 1923-1925 and renovated by Charlotte Perriand in 1928. No longer inhabited, they house the Fondation Le Corbusier museum and archives. The houses are located at 8-10 square du Docteur-Blanche, 16th arrondissement, Paris.
The Villa Jeanneret was commissioned by Le Corbusier's brother, Albert Jeanneret, and his fiancée Lotti Raaf. It forms part of a joint project with the connected Villa La Roche - the original scheme involved more houses and more clients, but it was only Jeanneret and La Roche that stayed the course and saw their villas built.
Design and construction
The program included a salon, dining room, bedrooms, a study, a kitchen, a maid's room and a garage. The site faced north, and zoning restrictions prevented windows looking over the surrounding back gardens. It was therefore necessary to get light in by creating light courts, a terrace, and skylights. At the roof is a roof terrace, similar to the deck of a ship.
