A designer house, listed as a French Historic Monument, in the midst of the town of Sceaux.
Between 1924 and 1926, André-Lurçat created a number of artists’ houses notably in the Parisian street known as Villa-Seurat and later in Sceaux, the town where he lived. The vast, 184-hectare Sceaux Estate is also listed as a French Historic Monument. It was designed by André-Le-Nôtre, the most famous of French gardeners, at the order of Colbert, then minister for Louis XIV. On Colbert’s death, his son, the Marquis of Seignelay, acquired numerous plots of land and the Estate then expanded to 220 hectares.
Le-Nôtre redesigned the gardens, creating the “Grand Canal” there, whilst architect Jules-Hardouin-Mansart built the Orangery. The Duke and Duchess of Maine then inherited the premises which became famous for its superb “Nights of Sceaux”.
This villa stands on the edge of the park, in a residential street, just a stone’s throw from pedestrian streets, shops and a market. Sceaux is renowned for its good schools such as the Lakanal and Marie-Curie secondary schools and sixth form colleges as well as its law university. Paris can be reached in 15 minutes by car via city gate Porte-d’Orléans and in 20 minutes via the RER line B train.
This house, on the edge of Sceaux Park was designed by is former owner, modernist architect André-Lurçat, who was, amongst other things, one of the colleagues of Robert-Mallet-Stevens. With the help of his brother Jean-Lurçat, painter and creator of wallcoverings, in 1924 he began building a set of artists’ studio-workshops which made him one of the most well-known of modern architects. He lived for 27 years in Sceaux, the only town to have four houses designed by this architect.
Too many places, emblematic of the Art-Deco period, have very often been emptied of their substance by extravagant interior transformations. But, the villa that André-Lurçat designed for his own use has a quality that has become rare amongst listed buildings: its actual furniture, a component of the overall spirit of the architecture, is listed. This fact is sufficiently outstanding that genuine architecture enthusiasts will be tempted to carry out what they see as restauration works. With the acceleration of time, the past gets closer and closer to us.
