  • Since that Ora - Ito, a young designer ambitious (son of the Morabito joiellier which he diverted to the Japanese name) opened its center of art (Ma MO = Marseille Modulor and wink at the MOMA in New York) on the roof-top of the radiant city she won big in appeal . Personally I find the fabulous concept: a home city, which originally was to include everything: a bakery, a school, a hotel. But not everything is so successful; The corridors (corridors) are low-ceilinged and dark wood becomes quickly claustrophobic; The restaurant"the belly of the architect" is certainly excellent but there are only sitting, you have not the view you might have, as Le Corbusier put concrete just across balconies. It is interesting to visit the apartments. Their nesting head - spade (an apartment that has the living room upstairs and the rooms downstairs fits into that room in upstairs and the living room downstairs) but those who still have original equipment are bit antiquated becomeA. The cabinets painted in primary colors are no longer our taste. But these are details. The set is absolutely unique in its kind; A home sharing a bit utopian, but at the time of innouie modernity. My preference is the roof of le Corbusier, which is now wholly owned by Ora - Ito, who made it a place of exposure outside. Exhibitions of international artists take place all the year. Felice Varini, in 2016 and now Jean Pierre Raynaud. Superb! And last not least the 360 degree view!

  • Despite bad weather, I really found it fun to browse the floors and the rooftop and also to visit an apartment at the last minute! I really appreciate this architectural work and apartment type would quite be me! Guide pleasant to listen to, the small Bookstore is friendly and attentive! I think people can play the game of an exhibition to show the various appropriations of the apartments! :) Again for my part for further reading!

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
