The Timeless Elegance of the Villa Cavrois: A Photographic Journey

Nestled in Croix, near Lille, the Villa Cavrois stands as a testament to the avant-garde vision of architect Robert Mallet-Stevens. Built between 1929 and 1932 for the industrialist Paul Cavrois, this modernist chateau blends innovative design with modern-day comfort. Through the lens of black and white photography, we invite you to explore the elegance and sophistication of this iconic structure.

Influenced by multiple artistic and architectural movements including Art Deco, De Stijl, the Bauhaus, and Cubism, Mallet-Stevens designed Villa Cavrois to embody modernity, functionality, and integration with nature. The villa's geometric forms, opulent materials, and its seamless blend with the surrounding landscape are a testament to these principles.
