Le Corbusier Villa Savoye modernist house now available as a Lego set


The original is a national monument in France, so there's pretty much no chance of owning the Le Corbusier Villa Savoye modernist house for real. You'll just have to make do with the iconic design as a Lego Architecture set.

The latest offering from the 'hip' Lego series, it features a house that was originally constructed for the Savoye family in 1931, but has taken much more significance for its groundbreaking architecture as the years have passed. No longer a house, it's a national treasure at Poissy, on the outskirts of Paris – and one you can wander round.

This version was designed by German architect Michael Hepp in collaboration with the Lego design team, complete with columns, functional roof space, open floor planning, long horizontal windows, and a free façade. A booklet is also included, explaining the design and the history in more depth. Available now from Lego, it is priced at £59.99.
