Maison Guiette also known as Les Peupliers, is a house in Antwerp, Belgium, designed by Le Corbusier in 1926 and built in 1927.[1] It was the studio and living quarters of René Guiette, a painter and art critic.[2] One of the Franco-Swiss architect's lesser-known works, it is an early example of the International Style.

In July 2016, the house and several other works by Le Corbusier were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.[3]
