The controversial renovation of Eileen Gray's E1027 on the Côte d’Azur is complete. Once a "lost legend of 20th-century architecture," the quaint holiday home has been brought back to life and is now open to the public. Announcing the news, The Guardian author Rowan Moore has recounted the cliffside project's turbulent past, reciting its significance as Gray's first architectural project.

Although much of the home's original essence has been restored, some botches remain, including unauthorized murals (now protected artworks) by Le Corbusier who declared Gray copied his style. You can read Moore's article about E1027 and the renovation, here. Visiting information can be found here.
