Colombo and Serboli Architecture have transformed a neglected and previously poorly planned interior into an attractive holiday home.

Faced with a tight budget, clever solutions were required to create an attractive, contemporary holiday atmosphere.

Within the iconic Cité radieuse in Marseilles designed by Le Corbusier, Apartment N°50 was scrupulously protected in its original 1952 state, classified as a “Historic Monument” in 1995.

A short series of scenographic installations has been realised over the years; Jasper Morrison (2008), Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (2010) Konstantin Grcic (2012), and now for its fourth session, the French designer Pierre Charpin.
