Rectangular Concrete House Turned on its Side

Villa Drusch, designed by Claude Parent, famous French modernist is built in 1963 for local industrialist Gaston Drusch. It implements architect’s “theory of oblique architecture” because looks like the home turned on its side. Simple rectangular concrete box become very original living space with tricky angles and open spaces. Outdoor lap pool is placed to give an ability to jump there from bedroom window. Living spaces are encased in aluminum-framed glass, which naturally lights the open interior. A staircase inside follows the slope of the exterior structure. A lot of surfaces inside are also made of concrete. Even though the house is designed a long time ago even today it looks more than contemporary.
