Le Corbusier's Studio-Apartment

One of the best things that Paris has is architecture. I'm not talking about the Eiffel Tower, which is impressive too, I'm talking about one of my favorite architects: Le Corbusier.

Last time we went to Paris we had the chance to see for the very first time Le Corbusier's Studio-Apartment (and many other places).

The studio apartment on Nungesser-et-Coli, was designed in 1931 and was completed in 1934.  It occupies the last two floors of the Molitor apartment block. The building is an architecture masterpiece too.

What surprised me more was the exterior, the views are stunning.

But let's talk about the interior, which is overwhelming too. One of the things that attracted me more was the bedroom. I didn't understand why the bed was elevated until someone explained that it was in that way so you see from there, the green of the Bois de Boulogne beyond the balcony balustrade outside.

The bedroom has integrated the bathroom, I was amazed about all the cupboards integrated into the walls and the storage space.

The living room left me without words. All I could think is to take with me the LC2 armchair.

 

And what about the stairs? Completely in shock.
