Villa « Le Lac » Le Corbusier

Villa « Le Lac » Le Corbusier

In 1923, Le Corbusier built the Villa « Le Lac » near Vevey. This masterpiece of the Modern Movement had a great impact on 20th century architecture. It has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage programme since 2016.

A gem of ingenuity and functionalism, the Villa « Le Lac » (1923) is among Le Corbusier’s most inventive and most personal creations. This masterpiece of modern architecture, built for the architect’s parents, embodies three of what would become his five points for a new architecture: the roof garden, the open plan design and the long, horizontal window. A real “machine for living”, it illustrates the ideas that Le Corbusier had already espoused in his earlier works and that would ensure the success of the villas that he built from the 1920s onwards.

In 2016, the Villa « Le Lac » became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its outstanding contribution to the Modern Movement, alongside 16 other architectural works in seven countries.
