The Villa Cavrois
Manifesto architecture, the Villa Cavrois is the emblematic work of the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, a figure of modernism. It was designed and built for Paul Cavrois, Northern textile industrialist, and his family. The program of the modern castle commissioned in 1929 is clear: "air, light, work, sports, hygiene, comfort and economy." Ranked history in 1990 through citizen mobilization monument, acquired by the state in 2001, the gigantic project of restoration carried out in 2003 by the DRAC Nord-Pas de Calais and then taken in 2008 by the Center for National Monuments has been completed in June 2015
