La Maison Louis Carré, qui date de la fin des années 1950, est une œuvre de la maturité d’Aalto ; elle a même un petit air de rétrospective, comme si l’architecte avait compris que Carré souhaitait ajouter un Aalto à sa collection d’art moderne. Dans certains espace, notamment la salle à manger, la maison dégage une atmosphère de confort bourgeois, assez éloignée de la dimension sociale des premières œuvres d’Aalto.
