'Tempe à Pailla' House Change this
Description Change this
While building the house E-1027, Eileen Gray bought land on the heights of Menton on the road of Castellar, thinking of building a house and a plot of 73 lemon trees on the other side of the road to avoid a future construction could hinder their views.
The house consists essentially of one floor with a living room that was extended by a terrace, a dining room, two separated rooms, a bathroom and a kitchen. You reach the house through the garden, an outside staircase and terrace. Gray lived there until the beginning of the war.
