Hôtel Bouctot Vagniez Townhouse

Listen to this rare account of an Amiens Art Nouveau building which has maintained the initial spirit of the people who commissioned it in 1906, André Bouctot, a rich man with a private income from finance, the husband of Marie-Louise Vagniez, who was the daughter of a rich fabric manufacturer. Part of the young woman’s huge dowry was used to build the townhouse designed for the couple.

The building work was managed from 1909 to 1911 by the architect Louis Duthoit. Using stone and yellow brick, the architect gave the building an appearance inspired by the Middle Ages. The façades of this real little city château feature decorative patterns borrowed from Art Nouveau, with a sense of exuberance that can be seen, above all, inside. Your guide will take you inside this exquisite residence to discover the luxury of a complete collection of furniture, chandeliers, fireplaces and stained-glass windows...

Learn all about this rare record of an Art Nouveau collection in Amiens that has preserved all its original spirit.
