The Unité d'Habitation, (Housing Unit) is an iconic modernist residential apartment building developed by the architect Le Corbusier. The building serves as an own city where hallways are called streets. It comprises 337 apartments, each lying on two levels. The measurements and colors are based on his modulor system. The roof is designed as a communal terrace with sculptural ventilation stacks and provides a fantastic view.

You can visit the cellule516, an inhabited apartment by appointment. The roof terrace is open to the public at day time during the summer season. For guided tours check the tourist office.
