What to expect

During your visit of Villa Cavrois, you will discover the tumultuous history of this modernist mansion, which was built in 1932 for Paul Cavrois, an industrialist active in the textile industry. Located in the northern of France, the architect of this work of art combining classical design and modernist aesthetics is the parisian Robert Mallet-Stevens, which conceived his most emblematic achievement with the villa. Mallet created the design of the building but he also designed the interior decoration and the gardens which surround the house.

Occupied during World War II, the villa was converted into barracks by the Germans. After the Liberation, the Cavrois had the interior layout of the villa designed by architect Pierre Barbe. Following the death of Madame Cavrois and acquired by a property developer, the mansion was set to be demolished and the park was subdivided. Classified later as a monument historique in 1990, and acquired by the State in 2001, a huge restoration project started especially in 2008 when the villa was entrusted to Centre des monuments nationaux (CMN).

CMN conducted the restoration of the interior spaces and decors (floors, wall coverings, paintwork, furniture), in order to recreate the art of living in the 20th century. CMN has also restored the park (replantation of trees, restoration of the water mirror and of original alleys) and the illumination of the park and the villa.

The villa Cavrois is now open to the public since June 2015 and is an unique place for modern architecture and design.
