Extravagant Art Nouveau Entrance Historical Design Inspiration
Jules Lavirotte was a French architect who is primarily known for his work during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was born on August 10, 1864, in Paris, France, and died on March 23, 1929, in the same city. Lavirotte's architectural style was heavily influenced by the Art Nouveau movement, which was characterized by organic forms, intricate detailing, and a departure from the traditional architectural conventions of the time. He is particularly renowned for his innovative and ornate designs for the facades of buildings.
One of Lavirotte's most famous works is the Hôtel de Noailles, located at 9 Rue Royale in Paris. Built between 1896 and 1900, this building showcases Lavirotte's unique style with its exuberant façade featuring intricate stonework, decorative ironwork, and sculptures. The Hôtel de Noailles is often considered one of the finest examples of Art Nouveau architecture in Paris. Another notable building designed by Lavirotte is the Castel Béranger, located at 14 Rue La Fontaine in Paris. Constructed between 1895 and 1898, it was one of the first residential buildings in Paris to display the characteristics of Art Nouveau. The façade of the Castel Béranger is adorned with decorative elements such as ceramic tiles, wrought-iron balconies, and sculpted figures, showcasing Lavirotte's attention to detail.
Lavirotte's architectural style was marked by a focus on craftsmanship, with an emphasis on using high-quality materials and incorporating intricate details. His designs often featured elements such as curved lines, floral motifs, and asymmetry, all hallmarks of the Art Nouveau movement. While Lavirotte's work was highly acclaimed during his lifetime, the popularity of Art Nouveau declined after the First World War, and his style fell out of fashion. However, in recent years, there has been a renewed interest in his buildings, and they are now recognized as important contributions to the architectural heritage of Paris.nOverall, Jules Lavirotte was a prominent figure in the Art Nouveau movement, known for his intricate and imaginative designs that pushed the boundaries of architectural conventions of his time.
We took that ironwork and art nouveau style of his door and adapted it to a more modern doorway shape and size while keeping the inspiration in the forefront. Our master blacksmiths created the delicate curly cues without making them overbearing, letting the flow of the door lead your eye. The hand forged door pulls fit seamlessly into the swirls of the door and our carvers' work. Celebrate your whimsical side and being a little bit of Paris home with you with this door as the grand entrance to your home.
