    Classic Home 043

    ArchWeek Image

    Main facade of Classic Home 043, Villa Stein, or Villa Garches, by Le Corbusier, Architect.

    "The deconstructed Palladian structure of this villa is brilliantly achieved on the ground and first floors ... where the means of vertical access are directly related to the narrow bays of the Palladian tartan grid of A-B1-A-B2-A. In this matrix the left-hand service stair is rotated 90 degrees and displaced out of its bay (B2). The gyration induced by this displacement initiates the asymmetrical configuration of the first floor, where the living volume "zigzags" between the kitchen situated on the left front and the inset terrace opening towards the garden at the right rear." Kenneth Frampton, Modern Architecture 1920-1945, p295.
