The Cortez is a mid-century modern furniture house that sits in the heart of Sydney’s inner-city.
The Cortez was built by French architect Maurice Cortez, who was born in Paris in 1884 and was the father of the Cortes.
Cortez designed more than 30 of his own works and also created a few other works that influenced the Cortés architecture.
The original Cortez house was a masterpiece of modernist design that has been called “the most magnificent house of the 20th century”.
It was also a home for artists and was home to an exhibition of Cortés drawings that were shown in Paris.
It is one of the most significant architectural works in Sydney history.
Its interior was designed by Australian sculptor and sculptor James Breslin and it was home for many of the world’s greatest painters.
In recent years, the Cortees have been trying to move the house into the Sydney CBD.
Sydney has a large housing stock of high-rise apartments.
This is a view from the first floor of the newly-renovated Cortez in Sydney, with a view to the street and its views of the harbour.
Inside, the space is dominated by two high-rises with a rooftop garden and two large terraces.
Outside, the room was converted into an open-plan meeting room for the Corteys.
On the ground floor, the main hall is divided into four rooms, and the Cortesi have added a new level to the front of the house.
They also had to install new windows, which give a beautiful view of the sea and the harbour below.
If you were a resident of Sydney when Cortez lived, you may know the story of his creation of the iconic Cortez.
“The Cortes were born as a result of a love of architecture, of the Parisian and Italian tradition,” Mr Cortez said.
His father, Pierre, had studied at the Paris School of Architecture, where he designed the first Cortez-designed apartment.
Pierre Cortez designed the Cortiess as a “means of escape, the perfect place to hide from the world”, and he envisioned it as a symbol of a place that was “free from the shackles of the modern world”.
“We had no money, no room to move around, and we had no means of communication with the outside world,” Mr Breslins daughter, Joanne, said.
“The reason that we wanted to design a house was that we were afraid that it was going to become something that could be destroyed by a large scale redevelopment.”
In 1905, Mr Cortes son, Jean-Pierre, came across the Cortese apartment and immediately fell in love with it.
“I thought this is the one for me,” he said.
After the building of the apartment, Mr Bregins wife, Joan, helped to create a foundation for the building, which became known as the Cortesian House.
When the Corteces moved into the Corteyes apartment in the 1960s, the new Cortes built it into an art gallery.
Today, the building is home to many artists, including a sculptor, an artist in residence and the owner of the art gallery, who is Mr Bremins daughter.
While the Corties’ building of Cortez has inspired a lot of other architects to design modern-day buildings in the city, Mr Dutroux has been working on his own modern-style house for years.
He is currently working on a house called the “Lombard”.
He hopes to have the building completed by 2020.
