Château Bonheur

Restoration of a Château in Provence

This enormous project entrusted to Lafourcade Architecture was completed in a year - a real challenge given that the architect's brief was to make the château more beautiful.
The idea was to focus attention on the place, its white stones and imposing dimensions. French architect Alexandre Lafourcade concentrated on the north façade of the château, where the client had sourced an ornamental artefact in an antique-shop and installed it above the main entrance.

The south façade, flanked by its twin steepled towers, is a jewel of the 17th century.
In line with the tradition of that period, the ground floor is designed for socialising while the upper levels are reserved for family life. The stables were converted into a light-filled orangery and designed to fuse homely comfort with contemporary style.
