First house for which the future Le Corbusier worked.

This city dwelling from 1906 bears witness to the pupils of Charles L’Eplattenier, who were seeking a regionalist style in the Art Nouveau spirit: later to be known as the "Style sapin" (pine tree style). Charles-Edouard Jeanneret was placed in charge of drawing up the plans and supervising the construction site with the architect René Chapallaz.
