The Bois d'Orcan Castle

Noyal-sur-Vilaine, France (in progress)

The Bois d'Orcan is a medieval castle built at the end of the XVth, which has preserved the greater part of its ancient structures. The building has been entirely restored to create a museum of furniture from the XVth and XVIth centuries. Part of the outbuildings and the park have been re-designed and restructured to house an important collection of Etienne Martin's sculptures. In the chapel one can find the Viallat's stained glasses. This restoration combines the emphasis of the ancient structures with the techniques and art of the world of today.
