French architect Claude Parent, whose work lies equally in written theory and physical structures, designed Villa Drusch, a home which embodies his “theory of oblique architecture.” Built in Versailles in 1963, the home is a literal embodiment of his theory. Constructed primarily of concrete, Villa Drusch appears to be a home turned on its side, a bold architectural move which still evokes interest today. Living spaces are encased in aluminum-framed glass, which naturally lights the open interior. A staircase inside follows the slope of the exterior structure, leading to a second level where the ceiling, contrary to the rectilinear exterior, curves dramatically inward. Most surfaces inside are also cast from concrete.
