Appartement Témoin Perret

LE HAVRE

This show flat gives the opportunity to understand how the Perret working group aimed at rehousing the locals after the town was 80% destroyed as a result of second world war bombing operations. This fully-furnished apartment provides the visitor with a great chance to see what modernity looked like in the early "post-war boom" years.

The show flat is designed to help visitors visualize where families were rehoused after almost ten years of living in rudimentary shelters. Perret's heartfelt vision was to give them the optimum confort with large and bright living spaces in a quiet neighbourhood. The furniture in the different rooms was designed by various architects such as René Gabriel, André Beaudoin and Marcel Gascouin. Ths was the first time that mass-produced furniture was used for middle-class families.

The rooms were fully equipped : a ktichen with a fridge, a gas stove, a pressure cooker and a rubbish-chute ; a record player and a writing machine in the living-room ; and a hoover and a washing machine in the bathroom.
