Villa ‘E-1027’.

Renowned Irish designer Eileen Gray’s renovated 1929 house in the Côte d’Azur, south of France has re-opened its doors to the public.

E-1027 (to be pronounced ‘e-ten-two-seven’). ‘E’ stands for ‘Eileen’, followed by ‘10’ for ‘J’ (representing ‘Jean’), then ‘2’ for ‘B’ (‘Badovici’) and finally ‘7’ for the ‘G’ in ‘Gray’. Jean Badovici was a Romanian architect, Gray’s then-partner and the owner of the villa. According to Gray, he collaborated with her on the site’s general plan.
