The town of Jouy-en-Josas, 4 km south of Versailles, is in the heart of the Bièvre Valley. Its stately homes were successively owned by wealthy families. Some even directly served the king, such as Antoine-d’Aquin, doctor to Louis XIV, or his grandson who served Louis XV. But it was, above all in 1760, the setting up of a factory producing Toile-de-Jouy, cotton cloth featuring exotic, coloured motifs, that the town became renowned throughout Europe and remains so today. Since the 19th century, it has been appreciated as a holiday haven in its verdant setting on the outskirts of Paris. It can be reached via the RER train line C, the station being just 3 minutes away from the house by car. The N118 and the A86 motorway can be quickly reached from the town. It is also home to the prestigious HEC school of commerce.
A driveway going up the hillside leads to the entrance to the house. Surrounded by trees and greenery, its facade walls feature either orangey-brown bricks or grey sprayed concrete. A course of large openings and windows elegantly adorn the property. A wide metal strip, like a stylish cornice, runs along the junction of the top of the wall with the flat roof, thus unifying the entire outside of the building. The house follows the lie of the land and although it comprises four levels, only two can be seen above ground level. In addition to its terraces on the garden level and the first floor, it has a patio with an outside courtyard included in the construction.
Once part of the Versailles forest estate, the parklands are set in the midst of a listed wooded area which constitutes an outstanding plant heritage. It is notably planted with evergreen oak, chestnut, maple, birch and acacia trees as well as several varieties of pine trees. A small pond, also listed, is home to a protected ecosystem.
With its immense living room, its multiple secondary areas, its wide corridors and its transparency between the inside and the garden, this construction has clearly been based on the creations of some of the 20th century’s greatest Modernist architects. The formal aesthetics are a kind of perfection. Functionality is not only a question of comfort, it is also the implementation of an interaction with nature just a stone’s throw from Versailles and Paris.
