A website that promotes Bordeaux, France has issued a story about a series of houses designed by a famous modern architect in the 1920s. The owner of a sugar refinery and a saw mill commissioned the architect to build employee housing. The design of the houses is considered architecturally important. The houses fell into disrepair and were almost demolished. However, an architect started an initiative that saved the houses. They have since been restored and are being used for low income housing.
