Cap Moderne, iconic Mediterranean coastline architecture!
Close to Monaco, Cap Moderne enjoys an exceptional natural setting with a panoramic view over the Mediterranean.
Villa E-1027 was created between 1926 and 1929 by Eileen Gray. It overlooks the bay of Roquebrune Cap-Martin looking out towards Monaco. A friend of the couple, Le Corbusier also became a close friend of Thomas Rebutato, owner of the restaurant l’Etoile de Mer. Le Corbusier developed five camping units built on stilts for his family, which he decorated with modern murals. He finished his work with the famous Cabanon in which he spent his summers until his death in 1965. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Villa E-1027, unique testimony to modern architecture
Eileen Gray’s villa is the first architectural creation in this symbolic real estate development.
An icon of 20th century modern architecture, it defines itself as a holiday resort and a manifesto for outdoor living. Eileen Gray brought an avant-garde vision not only to the architecture itself but also to the fixtures and fittings, furniture, lighting and décor that are inseparable from it.
