The two lovers share a little time. The summer of their break, Jean Badovici invites his friend, the architect Le Corbusier, who often stayed there until it builds in 1952 on a neighboring plot, its own wooden Shed. In two consecutive stays at the villa, Le Corbusier created on the white walls and decreed by Eileen Gray, more colorful frescoes, in total contradiction with the spirit of the place desired by the designer. As a small ship landed on the cliff, “E-1027 house in Seaside” is designed by Eileen Gray to be closer to the sea. The architect and designer invents a refined poesy in contact with elements – sea, wind, sun – with a wealth of ultramodern detail tending towards simplicity: simplicity of lifestyle, functionality furniture, convertible, retractable … generosity of space and organization of volumes Each bedroom .. each room has direct access to the outside shower and an office for the respect of subjective rhythms between action and dream. The holiday spirit prints the furniture created for the site.
