E1027 was Eileen Gray's concept of a dwelling for tomorrow in a place that has become mythical on a site that is magical. The house, built between 1926-1929 for sheltering her love with Jean Badovici, offers many layers of interpretation, starting with both the choice of its location, carved in a landscape mastered by natural elements and the relationship between technologic and handmade design solutions. E1027 is a house full of ingenious thinking, with a small staircase mysteriously leading down to a brilliant view over the Mediterranean Sea and Monte Carlo. The interior is a vivid combination of comfortable and inventive design, articulating several functions in a large open plan, a dining area, a place for tea, a place for siesta. Beds fold into walls, a table becomes a desk, and the hall has her written instructions for visitors - entrez lentement and défense de rire.
