Inspiration: Le Corbusier’s Envisions a Paris Rooftop Garden

In the 1920’s, Le Corbusier designed Carlos de Beistegui’s apartment in Paris. The rooftop garden, with a very grand rococo fireplace one would usually find indoors, turns the usual outdoor space on its head.

Here, he elaborates on it, with a mirror, candlesticks and an ornate sideboard, on grass.

But the chairs are classic French garden chairs c1900…Were the pillows meant for lounging?

We love looking at the origins of the idea, when the normally hyper-rationalist Le Corbusier seemed to embrace Surrealism…

Much inspiration for turning an outdoor space inside-out: “an irrational living room, featuring indoor furniture in an outdoor setting”*
