Maison-Atelier Ozenfant is an architectural gem nestled in the heart of Paris, embodying the essence of modernist design. Founded by the renowned artist and architect, Amédée Ozenfant, in collaboration with Le Corbusier, this space served as both a residence and studio. Constructed in the early 1920s, the building reflects the principles of the Purist movement, characterized by clean lines, geometric forms, and a focus on functionality.

Located at 53 avenue Reille, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, Maison-Atelier Ozenfant stands as a testament to the avant-garde spirit of its time. Visitors can explore its intimate interiors, which have been preserved to showcase the original layout and design elements that influenced modernist architecture. The studio space, in particular, remains a highlight, offering insight into Ozenfant's artistic process and collaborative work with Le Corbusier.
