Let’s rejuvenate La Noe de Bel Air’s Orangerie, a rare architectural jewel in the Loire region.

La Noe de Bel Air’s Orangerie

La Noe, a palladian style chateau located 30km away from Nantes, is also comprised of a courtyard, a pigeon loft and, last but not least, the Orangerie.

The Orangerie was built in 1836 and it is the oldest building in La Noe de Bel Air. Until 1956, it was used, as its name suggests, to keep orange trees during winter, which were placed in summer as decoration in front of the chateau.

The aim of our project is to renovate all of the Orangerie, which has lost some of its sparkle due to storms. Indeed, the north façade and the top cornice were almost entirely destroyed.

An earlier phase of renovation has already taken care of part of the principal (south) façade and renovated the top cornice and wall coatings.

However, the top of the north façade being destroyed, it no longer protects the building, meaning the Orangerie is at risk of further deterioriation due to the rain and winter frost.
