Despite the fact that the recent Keith Lemon-hosted remake did it’s best to ruin the legacy of the programme, we’re still big fans of Through the Keyhole here at It’s Nice That. After all, anyone who doesn’t admit to getting a voyeuristic thrill from peering into the living rooms of other people’s lives is, frankly, a liar.
For those of us who could both happily while away entire weeks watching Loyd Grossman ambling around a Z-lister’s pad and enjoy reading Owen Hatherley books, some big news has just broken: architectural giant Le Corbusier’s Parisian home has reopened its doors to the public, according to Dezeen.
After two years of restoration work carried out by Fondation Le Corbusier, the apartment (located in the city’s 16th arrondissement) where the Ville Radieuse head honcho lived with his wife and dog for the best part of three decades, architecturally-minded visitors will be able to snoop around the place with abandon.
Housed within Le Corbusier’s Immeuble Molitor development, the two-storey apartment is one of his most successful experiments in forward-thinking urban development. Given that we’d likely have a wander round Bobby Davro’s house if we got the opportunity, this chance to get an insight into how Le Corbusier himself lived is ever so exciting.
