Private Architecture - Expo Paris 1937

Private Architecture at the Exhibition Expo Paris 1937
Architect(s) : Lopez, Merlet et Charpentier

This pavilion was designed to show you the various elements of a modern home ready to be lived in.

From the entrance, a circular hall, paved with stone, serves an office, an expression of the workroom of a businessman with a special interest in architecture. You then visited the dining room, all decked out for a reception, the painting gallery and the grand salon.

All this was lit by large glass windows.

Then there was a smoking room with a balcony overlooking the gardens.

On the first floor, a gallery, bedrooms and a very modern bathroom.

On the second floor, on terraces paved with pink and flowers, the children's room with its puppet, the games and exercise room and the winter garden in which cacti, birds and flowers vibrated with their bright colours.
