Saurupt Park – Art Nouveau and Art Deco Villas
In 1901, an Art Nouveau style garden-city was created on the site of a former château of the Dukes of Lorraine. The project for this private estate with gates and a guardian was awarded to the architects Emile André and Henry Gutton.
However, only six opulent villas, out of the hundred initially planned, were built. In the inter-war years, other houses were built, but from here on the Art Deco style was employed.
Exploring this district, which is one of the city’s most beautiful, is thus an opportunity to become acquainted with both styles side by side.
Don’t forget to visit Square Jules-Dorget where the stunning gates designed by Emile André, for the formerly private residential estate of Saurupt, have been given a new home.
