Le Pavillon des Étoiles

Renaissance châteaux were not fortified castles, unlike their medieval predecessors. Rather, they were luxurious residences, built by sophisticates as centers of culture and refinement. Gothic tradition yielded to Italian influence, resulting in a progressive blend of styles.
The steep roofs reached toward the heavens, like fantastic castles in the sky. This progressive spirit lives in the houses and estates by Mark Turpin, where old meets new through innovative and unusual designs. For more details, click on the thumbnail views below.

Set in a lovely green meadow, "Le Pavillon des Étoiles" (The Pavilion of Stars) is a glittering house of white limestone with a steep, slate roof. Large windows reveal sunlit rooms by day and soft candlelight at night. In the French tradition, this garden pavilion is the embodiment of elegance and opulence.
The structure is 24" wide, 30" deep, and 36" tall. There are five rooms and an attic.
