Maison La Roche

Maison La Roche

An icon of modern heritage and the first expression of purism in architecture, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Designed and built between 1923 and 1925 by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, Maison La Roche was widely photographed and admired from the late 1920s onwards. Like all the Purist villas, it helped to establish Le Corbusier as the master of modern architecture.

The use of new building materials such as reinforced concrete enabled Le Corbusier to implement for the first time “the 5 points of a new architecture”, theorised in 1927: the free facade, the free plan, the long windows, the garden roof and the pilotis.

In accordance with the wishes of its patron, Raoul La Roche, a banker and collector of modern art, the house was divided into two parts: the gallery, which housed his collection of paintings, and his private flats.

The architectural ensemble of the Maison La Roche and the Maison Jeanneret underwent several restoration campaigns from the 1970s onwards. It was listed as a historic monument in 1996, and since 2016 has been included alongside 16 other works by Le Corbusier on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
