We saw this building at night when the whole front was floodlit. It dominates the Place Kleber and is a really beautiful building. The original building dates from 1765-72 and the name L'Aubette means "Orderly Room".

In an XVIIIth century building an Art Deco team designed several rooms between the wars.
Only one floor and a stair case remain
The rooms themselves are virtually empty only Wall decorations have been restored

In 1928 Theo van Doesburg, Jean Arp and SophieTaeuber-Arp designed the interior of this building in a transparent style with primary colours. It is great to see that the French have completely restored the design and have opened it for the public. The entrance is free. Compared to the gigantesque architecture of the European institutions, this building shows that modernist architecture can also deliver excellence.

We were staying on a city campsite & on the map they gave us this place had a small mention so we decided to visit .
The entrance is quite tricky to find but it is well worth it .
The guy at the entrance was very helpful and pleasant , free admission and commentary .
The interior is fascinating .

The house is only 3 rooms so doesnt take long and is really worth a visit, to see the decor and furniture. Beautiful style and a decorated piano - with a fun cinema. Kids enjoyed it. Its a real shame to miss it if you are in the area. and its free!

Originally the building was a military garnison. The pink sandstone house looks very good on the square. Inside Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Jean Arp and Theo Van Doesburg created this impressive gem of modern art and architecture. Open only afternoon!

Essentially a realisation of the Arps and of Theo Van Doesburg, in 1928. Strong references to De Stijl, the Dutch art movement that influenced Rietvelt and Mondriaan. Fabulous restoration of 4 spaces. Free admission. Highly recommended.

Jean Arp and his wife were influential figures in early 20th century art and design. L'Aubette is a fine example of their work encompassing architecture, furniture, and visual art. Moreover, it is a free attraction!

We visited L'Aubette 1928 to see the current art exhibition. The guard was very friendly and there were brochures in English explaining the modern art installations. Also of interest for the architecture and the rooms that have been restored to the art deco period.

As soon as I found out about the Aubette I knew I wanted to visit. The building dates back to the 18th century and was originally created for the military. Over the years its functions changed with the most interesting, in my opinion, being the creation of a leisure center in the 1920s.

The avant-garde artists Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Jean Arp and Theo Van Doesburg created this impressive gem of modern art and architecture. They favored geometrical forms, cubes and right angles and a reduced color palette of black, white and grey and the use of the primary colors red, blue and yellow.

There is only one floor with three rooms: the ciné-dancing, the foyer-bar and the salle des fêtes (function room) as well as the stairs. It might be only one floor but it is definitely worth seeing and free to visit.

The Aubette kept its original decor for less than a decade as people did not really enjoy it and already in the 1960s plans emerged to restore the site. But the first restorations were only undertaken in the 1980s and the last one was finished in 2006.
