Rue Mallet-Stevens
© R. Hide

Of all the 1920s French architects, Robert Mallet-Stevens best combined the stylishness of art deco with the principles of modernism. In the 16th arrondissement on Rue Mallet-Stevens (named after the architect in 1927), you will find several of his exclusive cubist houses, each just as modern as the next (even by today’s standards), with complex displays of windows, large volumes and formal compositions. While you’re there, don’t miss Rue du Dr Blanche (at the end of rue Mallet-Stevens), which (at no.5) harbors artists' studios by Pierre Patout, another art deco architect famous for decorating the luxury cruise liner Normandie (art deco was also known as 
le style paquebot (liner)).

One of the hidden treasures in Paris. Mallet-Stevens own house and a complex of other modernist buildings by him. Very close to the Le Corbusier Foundation also.
