The Maison La Roche is a must see for anyone interested in the history of modern architecture and urban design. However, for the general visitor it may be of limited interest. It is one of the first two houses designed by Le Corbusier. They were...More

I found this building attractive from the outside, but inside it did not live up to expectations. I made my own way around, and there was a pre-booked French tour going on at the same time. Frankly, it was disappointing and not very good value...More

Visiting this house gives a vision on the révolution introduced by Le Corbusier in housing in the early 20's. The villa Savoye in Poissy ( west Paris ) complement the architect understanding. The most impressive urbanisme global achievement in Europe is the Firminy Vert ensemble...More

I am a amateur architect and must say this house didn't interest me too much. It's just in too bad a state and too much out of date.

If you are interested in early 20th century architecture and the work of LecCorbusier then you should go to see this house. It's not entertaining, it's just an interesting genuine architectural treasure.

Difficult to find the building, then wasn't sure if it was open (had to ask a builder outside, then ring a bell). Charged the full amount (8 euro) with not a lot to see. However, that's probably the point. And the building is beautifully built...More
