André Lurçat (French architect, 1894-1970)
Close view of projecting glass bay with canopy, depicting full upper terrace and cantilevered canopy; Built by André Lurçat in 1927, the house is almost a cubic sculpture, stripped and without decorative effect. The front of the house was equipped with windows laid out irregularly, to determine a set of verticals and the horizontal ones. The house lost a little of its sculptural character because of the creation of new windows.
