A Villa of character in a dynamic village
During the "Belle Époque", from 1890 to the declaration of war in 1914, the French bourgeois built more sophisticated and original houses than the very classic mansions. Their architects drew inspiration from Art Nouveau, made of curves and arabesques. In England, it was the Arts & Crafts movement that first brought about this development.
The arrival of concrete, a modern material of the moment, associated with a desire to revive the art of cabinetmaking, pottery and enamelling, allowed creators to give free rein to their imagination.
This house built in 1897 is an illustration of this. It is the work of an architect named Elphège Lecul. This villa was commissioned by a notable Offranvillais who wanted to afford a house unlike any other.
