Stay in a former aerodrome clubhouse designed by Prouvé and Le Corbusier

Futuristic midcentury architecture outside of Metz

Architects Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier were inspired by the elegance of aircraft design when they created this former 1950s French aerodrome clubhouse – now a unique holiday home.

Prouvé has designed the midcentury modern property’s roof with two hulls linked by a central channel and lined its ceilings with aluminium sheeting. The refurbished house lies at the Doncourt lès Conflans airport 20 miles west of Metz and an hour south of Luxembourg City.

Its interior, which was created to Le Corbusier’s Modulor scale of proportions and measurements, has a double-height living space with a glazed wall supported by a grid of red steel beams. Adding contrast elsewhere are stone walls and glazed timber wall panelling.

The Meurthe-et-Moselle property has wide sky views and faces the airfield where guests can have a flying lesson. It has eight bedrooms including an adjoining annexe and can be rented exclusively through Patrice Besse for €2,000 to €3,000 per week and €1,000 to €2,000 for the weekend.
