Le Corbusier designed this waterfront home on the edge of Lake Geneva (again, in collaboration with his architect cousin) for his parents between 1923 and 1924, making Villa Le Lac one of his earliest built projects. The single-story block building has a reinforced concrete structure with a sun deck on its flat roof. The interior is fitted with movable partitions and foldout furniture, while some of the walls are colorfully painted.
