Nonexistent architecture

Loucheur houses (Le Corbusier, 1929)

Go to the video



In 1929 Le Corbusier designed some particolar houses, they are called Loucheur houses. The project has never been realized. This type of house represents  Le Corbusier’s conception of architecture that is this house groups includes the five points of the architecture (pilotis, ribbon windows, open floor plan, free facade, roof garden) . In fact these drawings show some principles like ribbon windows on all sidewalls or the use of pillars called pilotis. 





This type of house is a big block that it contains two flats separated by a stone wall. Every flat has a separate entrance and an external staircase. The entire home could be prebuilt that is it could be composed by many elements.

In this drawing the partition walls are almost non existent, only the walls that define the bathroom are real. Other rooms are defined by the furnishing, this is especially moving and changeable. A sliding panel opens the bedroom or the kitchen; wardrobes divide the living area from the sleeping area. The sleeping area can organize the space in different ways, depending on the needs: during the day, beds are closed so that there is space to play or to study; also this architectural space can be divided further into two rooms through a particolar system of moving panels.



This threedimensional drawing has allowed us to imagine the architectural space drawn by Le Corbusier and ever made. This theory tried to interpret parsed documents in the best possible way. 

The threedimensional model of the Loucheur houses, with its furnishing has allowed us to study many different combinations of the space.
