Documentation photography of Finnish Architect, Alvar Aalto's Maison Louis Carré in Poissy, France.
When documenting Maison Louis Carré, I sought to capture the character and minute details of the classic Alvar Aalto design.
The landscape is unique and specific to its purpose, fit with garden terraces that are spread in a very specific manner in relation to the home and site. The exterior of the home, although situated in Poissy, France has distinct Finnish characteristics. From the copper roof that slopes with the landscape, to the window louvers and crates at the doorways. The interior is filled with original designs in furniture and lighting, fit with unique characteristics and signature Alvar Aalto details.
The emphasis on lighting documentation is an effort to focus on the classical Finnish designs of Aalto and understand the quality that they emit to enhance the space.
