A first in 100 years
We find ourselves in the Château Louis XIV in Louveciennes, an immensity of 23 hectares/69 acres built in 2008 by the company Cogemad.
A unique architectural feat for our time, the 5000M2 castle is located in Louveciennes, in the Yvelines, 20 minutes west of Paris, only a few blocks from Versailles.
This project was named Chateau Louis XIV in honor of the eponymous king and his love for architecture. At the beginning of the 21st century, this was a challenge both in terms of design and execution.
It had to be designed in such a way as to provide all the modern comforts essential to this type of residence, as well as to meet current building standards. For the construction, the aesthetics and spirit of a Louis XIV building had to be respected in a brand new structure.
The BELLE ÉPOQUE collection
During the renovation of the Château, 23 towel rails from the CINIER BELLE ÉPOQUE collection were chosen by the architects and installed in all of the château’s bathrooms.
The BELLE ÉPOQUE towel warmers in the purest classical style combine perfect quality with excellence in workmanship and finish. Their elegance and reliability create an atmosphere of authentic and aesthetic values.
The models manufactured for the castle are in fully electric version.
New owner & new bathroom
A few years later, the Prince of Saudi Arabia bought the property and decided to do some new work with a team of architects from London. The new architects decided to renovate 8 of the castle’s bathrooms by changing the rooms and decoration: 8 new CINIER towel rails in a custom-made version were then manufactured for this project.
