Maison La Roche

Maison La Roche, also Villa La Roche, is a house in Paris, designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in 1923-1925. It was designed for Raoul La Roche, a Swiss banker and collector of avant-garde art.

Villa La Roche now houses the Fondation Le Corbusier. La Roche commissioned Le Corbusier to build a villa as well as a gallery to house his art collection.

In July 2016, the house, Villa Jeanneret, and sixteen other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
