I laughed when I saw that I've written that post in French before seeing that the thread was in English!

I've been looking for those two hôtels particuliers ever since I read that one of them influenced the design of Perry Belmont mansion in Washington D.C., now the International Temple.

http://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/th...-houses-very-u

Some sources say it was Hôtel d'Arenberg that was the inspiration, others Hôtel Lebaudy, but now I can't find where I had read about Hôtel d'Arenberg.


http://issuu.com/acanthus_press/docs...auer_flip_book

The design for Hôtel Lebaudy must be in the Fonds Sanson, which are kept in Archives nationales in Pierrefitte. I have no idea whether members of the public can consult the fund.

Paul-Ernest Sanson was one of the best architects of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century. It really is true what the French Wikipédia says:

Quote:
Hôtel de Breteuil, aujourd'hui ambassade d'Irlande, Paris, 1902
International Temple (Belmont House), Washington DC, 1909

Le style distinctif de Sanson est la construction de demeures élégantes, inspirées des meilleurs modèles classiques, mais confortables et pourvues de tout le confort moderne. Il surclasse ses rivaux par l'élégance de son style et la sûreté de son goût, là où d'autres construisent des résidences qui font immanquablement penser à des hôtels de voyageurs.

Absolutely, and his works don't look like pastiches of the 18th century or kitsch
Unfortunately his creations were not assessed for its true worth a few years ago

Hôtels particuliers of the Place Vendôme [early 18th century], Paris :

Place Vendôme was laid out in 1702 as a monument to the glory of the armies of Louis XIV.
Its regular architecture is due to Jules Hardouin-Mansart who designed in 1699 a strict Urbanism Plan to which the owners of buildings had to conform.
The positioning of the 28 hôtels particuliers give the rectangular Place Vendôme the aspect of an octagon.



No. 10 Hôtel de Latour-Maubourg :



No. 13 Hôtel de Bourvallais (French Ministry) & No. 15 Hôtel de Gramont (Hôtel Ritz) :



No. 16 Hôtel Moufle :



No. 23 Hôtel de Boullongne :

Hôtels particuliers of the Place de la Concorde [later half of the 18th century], Paris :

Before the French Revolution, the square was named Place Louis XV to honor the king at that time.
The Place was designed by Ange-Jacques Gabriel in 1755 as a moat-skirted octagon between the Champs-Élysées to the west and the Tuileries Garden to the east.
At the north end, two wide identical hôtels close the perspective.
Behind these two buildings separated by the Royal Street, several hôtels were erected.


No. 2 Hôtel de la Marine [1757 - 1774] :


No. 4 Hôtel de Coislin [1770] :


No. 10 Hôtel de Crillon [1775] :

This is one of my favorites threads here!
I am going to decide which cities to visit next based on the number of hotels particuliers of the city. Toulouse and Bordeaux are high on the list!

Thx Aljuarez

Yes, in the South of France, Toulouse and Bordeaux are one of finest cities with many hôtels particuliers (with Montpellier and Aix-en-Provence)

Hôtel de Chabouillé, or what is left of it

The hotel is situated in Moret-sur-Loing, south east of Paris. It was built by 1527 for Nicolas Chabouillé, a finance officer.

It is also called "Maison de François Ier" because of the salamander carved above the door, this animal was the King's symbol.

This hotel, abandoned for several years, had served as a warehouse for a cooper.

In 1822, a cavalry officer purchased the building for the purpose of speculation.
The facade was dismantled and assembled in the Cours-la-Reine, between the Place de la Concorde and the Place du Canada, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris :

The mansion have been owned by several owners and finally have been destroyed in 1956 to make way for offices.

The facade was again dismantled and assembled in its home city, Moret-sur-Loing, near the city hall.
