Built by the architect Claude Parent between 1963 and 1965, this house is a striking testimony to modernist architecture. Its oblique roofs make it a remarkable building of the 20th century endowed with a strong architectural and heritage value.

Through this achievement, Claude Parent demonstrates his virtuosity in processing reinforced concrete. Inside, the delicate treatment of the exposed concrete echoes the sculptural movement of the roofs. Successive sets of frames guide the eye and fully open the house to the outside. A plastic and aesthetic research that we find in a thousand and one details: the wooden frieze surrounding the house, the metal railing of the mezzanine, the treatment of the floors. The volumes complement each other, the shapes come alive and create an atmosphere conducive to creativity and rest.
