Gio Ponti house

The Italian-style house was designed by Gio Ponti for Tony H. Bouilhet and built in Garches outside Paris, near the Saint-Cloud golf course – a place that was causing architectural excitement in those years: from Le Corbusier’s villa for the Four Americans in Paris – Gertrude, Leo, Michael, Sarah Stein – to Perret’s villa for Numar Bey. The two-storey high central hall contains a staircase – a motif that Ponti would later take up – and a painted ceiling, designed by Ponti: a large colored curtain over the empty space.
