  • Maisons Jaoul are a celebrated pair of houses in the upmarket Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, designed by Le Corbusier and built in 1954-56. The buildings were drawn in 1937 but were only built postwar for André Jaoul and his son Michel. They are among his most important post-war buildings and feature a rugged aesthestic of unpainted cast concrete "beton brut" and roughly detailed brickwork. They were for a time owned by English millionaire Lord Palumbo. They now belong to two sisters who live there with their families. The Maisons Jaoul have been protected by the French government as historical monuments since 1966, at the request of André Malraux.
