House Saint-Forget by André Wogenscky

Located in the Chevreuse valley, a rural town only 45 km from Paris, the House Saint-Forget is a modernist villa designed by French architect André Wogenscky in 1957.

Nestled in luxurious greenery constituting the upper part of a vast woodland crossed by a brook, two tall chimneys stand at the rooftop terrace, inside is pure white and you wouldn’t be surprised to meet Le Corbusier.

André Wogenscky worked closely with Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier (1887-1965) for 20 years, first as his draftsman and main assistant, later as his colleague and personal friend.

Inspiration from architect:

The composition and volumes of the house follow the rules of the ‘Modulor’, architectural concept based on the proportions of the human body.
