Château Laurens - Agde (34)

Complete restoration

Built at the end of the 19th century, based on the plans of its owner, Emmanuel Laurens, this house enveloped by a neoclassical shell, hosts an extravagant decor.

In 2008, the agency carried out the restoration of the entire zinc-shell cover prior to restoring the Music Room in 2012: facades, hanging vault to the roof structure, stained glass and double-glazed windows, cement tiles floors.
Restoration work on the central part and the Small Apartments is currently underway. Simultaneously, the agency is working on studies pertaining to the construction of a reception building and the restoration of the 1900 garden.

The public opening is scheduled for spring 2020.
