Architectural manifesto, the Villa Cavrois is the emblematic work of the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, figure of the modernist current. It was designed and built for Paul Cavrois, a northern textile industrialist, and his family. The program of this modern castle ordered in 1929 is clear: "air, light, work, sports, hygiene, comfort and economy".
Classified as a historical monument in 1990 thanks to the citizen mobilization, acquired by the State in 2001, the gigantic restoration project implemented in 2003 by the DRAC Nord-Pas-de Calais and then taken over in 2008 by the Centre des monuments nationaux was completed in June 2015.
