A designer house
inspired by Le Corbusier’s standards

Location

130 km from Paris, 120 of which are on the A77 motorway, in the Gâtinais region’s Venice, at the confluences of the Loing, the Puiseaux and the Vernisson, near to Briare canal and to Montargis.
Just a few minutes from a village with local shops.

Description

The total surface area of approx. 14,790 m² stretches over land comprising woods (oak, cedar, and Scots pine trees) and grasslands. It is separated from the neighbouring property and the forest by fencing.
The estate is accessed through sliding, metal carriage gates with a side pedestrian gate.

The house
Built in 1967 as a main residence, this house was designed according to Le Corbusier’s golden ratio and human scale, “the modulor”. Its polychromy was created by Sopick, a contemporary architect from the school of Le Corbusier.
It is designed all on one level around a long corridor which leads to an eating area, a living room with large picture windows that open out on to a covered, open air terrace, the so-called “master” studio and its shower room, a kitchen and three bedrooms. There are three ways of entering the house: via the terrace, via the bedrooms or via the master studio.

The building is built over a crawl space and a cellar containing a boiler room and a central heating system.
The external vertical walls are lined in order to ensure thermal insulation. The floors are covered with ceramic tiles throughout. All the ceilings are of wood. The flat roof has a waterproof covering and leaktight thermal insulation and soundproofing.

The terrace
The south-facing terrace is raised between 1-1.8 m off the ground in accordance with the land’s natural gradient. It spans a floor surface area of 22 m².

The guest house
The south-facing guest house, 60 m east of the designer house, is all on one level and is made of wood. It has vertical and horizontal insulation. The vertical walls are made of plasterboard panels.
Two terraces surround the building.

The outbuilding
The south-facing outbuilding, 20 m east of the guest house, is all on one level and is made of wood. This building awaits interior conversion works.

Our opinion

Such architecture is totally unexpected in this region, in this setting. It features an original range of shapes, materials and colours, characteristic of Art Nouveau. The buildings are in need of some attention and the wooded parklands could be developed so as to optimise this leisure property, hidden in its unspoilt setting, just an hour from Paris.
