In 1928, the French government approved the "Loi Loucheur", a financial investment program for social housing that was also to stimulate the steel industry. Le Corbusier has developed the Maison Loucheur as a response to the housing industrialization policy.
The house is created with prefabricated, insulating and light elements, the elements are transported and assembled on site in a few days, thus responding in the best way to the laws of the industrial economy.

The Maison Loucheur is designed with several purchases: the original house is 45 square meters, it is possible to combine two, four or four to obtain modules to obtain a case of 90, 135 or 180 square meters.
Using reinforced concrete shows Le Corbusier's approach to the concept of geometric architecture.

One of the features of the Loucheur project is the thick stone wall as a separation between the two accommodations. The Corbusier defended his presence with practical arguments, it is a clear separation between the due case of making them independent and has the faculty to insert better in more contexts adapting with the use of the local material.
