LE CORBUSIER'S STUDIO-APARTMENT IN PARIS

Le Corbusier’s studio-apartment occupies the last two floors of the Molitor apartment block, located at 24, rue Nungesser et Coli. Designed between 1931 and 1934 by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, the building called “24 N.C.” is situated in the 16th arrondissement at the border between Paris and Boulogne. Due to its East-west orientation and its exceptional surroundings, it fits what Le Corbusier termed “the conditions of the radiant city”.

As a project for a rental building, it offered the architect the opportunity to test the validity of his urban proposals. Given that no structures were placed opposite, he could raise facades entirely filled with windows, constructing the first residential apartment made of glass in architectural history.

Bathed in light, Le Corbusier’s personal apartment spans the length of the last floor and houses his painting studio. The architect would inhabit this apartment-terrace from 1934 until his death in 1965. The apartment was classified as a Historical Monument in 1972, and the facades facing the streets, the courtyard, the roof and the entrance hall were also inscribed as such in 1990.

A few early morning shots of my little ones. The sansevieria has a new pot and the ivy is the latest arrival. Together with the three Hannie Mein ceramics (I got them this summer from Forest London) sit above my fireplace, which is useless by the way - November has come and the temperature is still around 22°C!

Let the sunshine in!

NOELL OSZVALD

Noell Oszvald is a young self-taught visual artist from Budapest, Hungary.

"I’m a perfectionist and I believe it shows in my obsession with lines. It can be explained by having a continuous desire for keeping the things that surround me neat and in order. I can’t focus well if there’s chaos around me. I also find it fascinating the way these lines and forms are there to create a perfect balance by finding the right place for each of them. You just have to look around."
