Bought as a gift. The person I bought it for was very happy with it and constructed it quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LucasSteuber Creative and very true to life
This is a difficult building to execute - not only architecturally to begin with, but also difficult to model. I thought that the LEGO team did an excellent job of representing the original structure and an admirable job of incorporating the really distinctive nature of it - meaning the contrast between hard corners/lines and more organic curves and the open nature of much of the structure.
There a few complaints I have that have nothing to do with LEGO. I sometimes feel like this architect's buildings are a bit too simple/modern, and the all white/clear motif can get a bit tiring to build in terms of repetition. That said, I'm definitely glad that I have it; it offers a good start into the "artsy" types of architecture sets before dropping the money necessary for Fallingwater, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toftsy Fantastic Savoye
This is my 16th Model that I have completed in the Lego Architecture range.
I am not disappointed to say the least...
Villa Savoye is a delightful model very strikingly similar to the real building in France. As a big fan of Architecture and a fan of Le Corbusier being a pioneer of modern architecture, this is an addition that I had to have.
The Box was actually bigger than I expected and the size of the model is also well proportioned throughout.
The building is in 2 stages, the base inclusive of the support pillars then the upper building itself.
The design is fantastic, especially making use of the upper curved sections of the building. Very clever!
There is a hole in the top part of the building to slot onto the base section and with a firm push, the building comes together beautifully.
The finished look is absolutely true to the real building and looks fantastic alongside the range I have already built.
The Lego Box and booklet are of the usual high standard and contains very interesting facts of the building as well as step by step instructions. Very detailed throughout, concentrations levels need to by good otherwise it will not go together well.
Excellent value for money in my opinion and a great model overall, love it!
Well done Lego!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shankovich Great showpiece
Great fun building, it was my first Lego set in a very long time. It looks great on my desk, though my only complaint is that I wish it was a bit larger. Maybe 1.5 times its current size. I understand architecture models are supposed to be small scaled models, but I wouldn't mind if the architecture series got a large or very large (UCS level size) set on it.
Overall though, a fun build with a great looking end product! Fully recommended!

Was a good set fairly straight forward to put together fairly stable once together one of my favourites (have made most of the building in the architecture series) to see the construction of this structure you can see it here http://youtu.be/RNaYsWbDS5g defiantly good fun would definitely recommend!
