Villa Cavrois

Designed between 1929 and 1932, Villa Cavrois is the most emblematic achievement of architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, a figure of the modernist school. This architectural manifesto was built for Paul Cavrois, a textile industrialist from the Nord department, and his family.

The villa became classified as a historical monument in 1990 thanks to citizen mobilisation and was acquired by the State in 2001. The huge restoration project implemented in 2003 by the DRAC Nord-Pas-de Calais and then taken over by the Centre des Monuments Nationaux in 2008 was completed in 2015.

The monument is open to visitors. Find out more at
