le corbusier's cabanon
These are images taken from Le Corbusier's cabanon at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin that I talked about in the last post. I'm posting little details of the cabin rather than showing the whole cabin. I was on a tour and the cabin was so tiny that even 4 people inside made it seem very crowded. Everything is still original inside the cabin. The paint is faded and the wood is worn and there is a lovely feel that comes with the patina of age. Le Corbusier and his wife holidayed in this little cabin but always ate at the adjoining restaurant of their friends the Rebutatos. This is very much a summer cabin and I imagine that they spent most of their time outside.
