    Description:

    Originally built by Christophe Perrot in 1622. It was formerly the residence of Joséphine de Beauharnais, (later the Empress) and with the Tuileries, was from 1800 to 1802 the headquarters of the French government. It is the most complete expression of the Consulate style, and owed more perhaps to the taste of Empress Josephine than to Napoleon. Fontaine and Percier were received at Malmaison on 31 December 1799 and presented to First Consul Bonaparte by the painter Jacques-Louis David. They …

    Description:

    The present building was begun (1751) for Louis XV, King of France, by Anges-Jacques Gabriel. It was finished (1786) for Louis XVI by Le Dreux de la Châtre (b 1721) to Gabriel’s plans. The plan is trapezoidal, with the garden front placed at an oblique angle to the cour d'honneur, a complexity necessitated by the awkwardness of the site. There was no damage to the building during the French Revolution although the contents were sold (1795), and after a period as a military academy, th…

    Description:

    Built for Hugues Pontard, whose son, François, became mayor of La Rochelle in 1567. Popularly called ‘the house of Henri II" the structure is not a house at all, but a frontage without depth. Its superimposed galleries are only narrow corridors linking the two wings of the actual home, with a staircase in the tower. It is thus a monumental decoration, facing the garden court for the satisfaction of its patron Pontard. The architect is unknown, but worked in a classic Renaissance style.

    Description:

    The front of the building with its little observation tower overlooked the artificial lake.

    Mique was a landscape designer of some note, and from 1783 to 1785, with technical advice from Hubert Robert, he worked on the Hameau at the Trianon, a group of cottages by an artificial lake where Marie-Antoinette and her ladies played at being villagers. He built another hamlet for the Mesdames de France at Bellevue (destroyed). The group of 12 peasant houses were made of cob and roofed with tiles o…
