Loved reading Alice Rawsthorn’s article on the transformation of Villa Noailles into a design gallery. One of the more luxurious villas of French modernism, it was built by Parisian art collectors Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles in 1923. They commissioned Robert Mallet-Stevens to design this holiday home in the town of Hyères in Provence. It had it all: white cube, flat roof, lots and lots of light, sharp geometric forms, and an avant-garde swimming pool. It was in fact so radical at the time, that it was hailed as the epitomic manifestations of modernism in domestic architecture and the location for Man Ray’s film Les Mystères du Château du Dé.
