In context : Back to the XIXth century at the West of Paris
(From : Castel Béranger). Follow Jean-de-la-Fontaine street then turn right into Leopold-II avenue, and get to Rodin square and the garden of the same name. Then turn right again into Adrien-Hébrard street until the prestigious Mozart avenue, and successively turn left into de la Cure street, right into de l'Yvette street, and right once more into du Docteur-Blanche street. Mallet-Stevens street will be on your right also.
Rarely a street name had been so appropriate : Robert Mallet-Stevens (1886-1945) has almost entirely build this little dead-end where 5 private mansions and a keeper's house form one the major works of contemporary architecture.
Inaugurated in 1927, and initially intended to house artists, the lot is a skillfull arrangement of forms, such as cubes and cylinders, using terraces and other elements to make every apartment unique. Use of concrete and plate glass windows contribute to the sense of calm and relaxation that the architect intended to convey.
