Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret—his cousin and longtime collaborator—designed Maison La Roche for Raoul La Roche, a Swiss banker and modern art collector. The house, which includes a gallery for La Roche’s cubist art collection as well as his private apartment, sits adjacent to another structure the duo built for Jeanneret’s brother, dubbed Maison Jeanneret. Completed in 1925, Maison La Roche-Jeanneret comprises two white volumes that join to create an L-shaped plan. Today, the building operates as a museum for the Fondation Le Corbusier.
