ANDRÉ, Émile
(b. 1871, Nancy, d. 1933, Nancy)

Villa Les Glycines

Parc de Saurupt, Nancy

With Henri Gutton (1873–1963), André planned a new suburban development of 28 villas, the Parc de Saurupt in Nancy. He designed the concierge's hut and two houses, Les Roches, for his own use and another, Les Glycines, for Fernbach, an industrialist from Lorraine. Although the former is built in rusticated stonework, while the latter is precisely dressed, the placing of openings in both is informally and asymmetrically arranged according to the location of the internal spaces. The variety of the openings also conveys a picturesque quality by use of verandahs, porches, bow windows and balconies.
