France | Restoration completed of historic modernist villa with paintings by Le Corbusier

Eileen Gray and Jean Badovici's Villa E-1027 and Le Corbusier's Cabanon hut have reopened in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin in the south of France after extensive restoration work on the Modernist coastal properties.

Designed by the Irish architect and designer Eileen Gray and Jean Badovici, the Romanian architect and editor of L'Architecture vivante, as a vacation retreat, Villa E-1027 was Gray's first architectural creation. She spent three years working with Badovici on the layout of the 1929 villa and designing furniture such as its Transat and Bibendum armchairs.
