Clearly visible but often overlooked, the Orangerie is about to come back to life. This exceptional heritage requires rigorous restoration to be the showcase for the know-how of our cooks and artisans, let's help reopen its doors!

L'ORANGERIE de GRENOBLE

Through the ages, In the heart of the city

In 1895 the building of the orangery closed the perimeter of the garden of plants on its east side.

   Opened in 1924 to allow the establishment of the international exhibition of the Houille Blanche, the Boulevard de Bonne, now Bd Jean Pain gives a whole new visibility to the Orangerie by placing it at the heart of the urban development of the city.

On the occasion of this event, the Perret Tower is built in the Paul Mistral park facing the Orangerie. From then on, the Orangerie sees the “modern city” developing around it. This is evidenced by the construction of the Town Hall in 1967, for the Olympic Games, and more recently of the Stade des Alpes in 2008.

The exceptional visibility of the Orangerie was increased in 2006 with the opening of the Tramway on Boulevard Jean Pain

A remarkable building of Grenobloise architecture at the end of the XIXth Century

In addition to its volume and its high-quality architecture, the originality of this building lies in the mixed construction choice of stone / molded cement, (or dummy stone), so particular to the buildings in the city at the end of the 19th century.

The characteristic of an orangery being to accumulate heat, the openings are of major importance, particularly on the west facade. Widely open with semicircular bays, it is characterized by the multiplicity of identical openings along its entire length. Its regularity is marked by the presence of molded frames in prompt cement. The frames of the central entrance are particularly worked.

West facade: original plan in 1895.

Another particularity of the Orangerie lies in its imposing volume, bathed in light.

PROJECT DISPLAY

In 2017, the City of Grenoble launched a call for projects aimed at enhancing part of its real estate heritage and helping the people of Grenoble to rediscover certain buildings through new uses, including the Orangerie building for which the City de Grenoble selected our project. We have already obtained our building permit and have signed a contract with the City of Grenoble for the work and operation of the Orangery!

An exceptional setting for a new place to live

We rely on the history of the building and on the mix of services and uses to generate links.

Thanks to a comprehensive offer deployed by local players, and with a rich, varied and heritage-friendly program, we want to bring locals and tourists an accessible place of life, culture and experiences.

Developed around Gastronomy and Crafts, the Orangery will reopen its doors in 2021! 

In particular, it will offer its visitors:

    - a gourmet hall with ten local restaurateurs

    - a culinary workshop open to both Chefs and the general public

    - a space dedicated to the promotion and transmission of craftsmanship

    - a reversible cultural scene to offer various events


WHAT WILL THE COLLECTION BE USED FOR?

Our project is, in large part, financed with regard to interior fittings with the help of our economic and banking partners. Work starts this winter.

On the other hand, the restoration works of the building and the facade are subject to the participation of the cultural and heritage service of the department, which remains to be completed; aware of the exceptional character of the facade, we are now asking for your help to enable us to restore it.


Following a detailed study of the costs of the works, several levels are put in place:

Minimum objective: 2500 Euros which will be used for the recovery and cleaning of the prompt cement facade around the monumental door

   

- Level 2: 7,500 Euros for the replacement of the monumental door on the West facade  

    

- Level 3: 15,000 Euros for the overhaul of the monumental wooden door overlooking Boulevard Jean Pain

                                

- Level 4: 25,000 Euros for the repair of all the windows 

  West glass roof: exterior view

  West glass roof: interior view

WHO ARE WE ?

Our team brings together various actors, committed to the preservation of heritage, the economic and solidarity development of the territory, gastronomy and mastery of short circuits, craftsmanship and the transmission of knowledge.

This plurality has convinced the city of Grenoble which supports our project and we are proud to support its development today.
