modular design -- the result of Corbu's researches into mathematics, architecture (the golden section), and human proportion " pilotis " -- the house is raised on stilts to separate it from the earth, and to use the land efficiently. These also suggest a modernized classicism.

modular design -- the result of Corbu's researches into mathematics, architecture (the golden section), and human proportion
  • "pilotis" -- the house is raised on stilts to separate it from the earth, and to use the land efficiently. These also suggest a modernized classicism.
  • no historical ornament
  • abstract sculptural design
  • pure color -- white on the outside, a color with associations of newness, purity, simplicity, and health (Le Corbusier earlier wrote a book entitled, When the Cathedrals were White), and planes of subtle color in the interior living areas
  • a very open interior plan
  • dynamic, non-traditional transitions between floors -- spiral staircases and ramps
  • built-in furniture
  • ribbon windows (echoing industrial architecture, but also providing openness and light)
  • roof garden, with both plantings and architectural (sculptural) shapes
  • integral garage (the curve of the ground floor of the house is based on the turning radius of the 1927 Citroen)

Le Corbusier’s "The Five Points"
  • The pilotis, or ground-level supporting columns, elevate the building from the damp earth and allow the garden to flow beneath.
  • 2. A flat roof terrace reclaims the area of the building site for domestic purposes, including agarden area.
  • 3. The free plan, made possible by the elimination of load-bearing walls, consists of partitions placed where they are needed without regard for those on adjoining levels.
  • 4. Horizontal windows provide even illumination and ventilation.
  • 5. The freely-designed facade, unconstrained by load-bearing considerations, consists of a thin skin of wall and windows.
