Luminous and white, it`s the first house built by Le Corbusier as an independent architect.

Built for his parents in 1912, this was Le Corbusier's first project as a freelance architect. The house was decidedly avant-garde for its time – a work from the architect's youth that sheds much light on his later designs.
