Description

Paul-Michel Thibault (1735-1799) was the architect in charge of the constructions of Le Havre fortifications and was also the hydrant man of the town. In 1790, he dediced to build his own house in the upper-class area of Le Havre

In 1800, Martin Pierre Foache (1728 – 1816) who was a wealthy merchant, bought the house and would live there in winters with his family. Assisted by Pierre Adrien who formerly designed the King’s cabinet, he turned some rooms into commercial premises.

The façade is based on what Louis XVI architecture style was. Parquet flooring made from exotic wood can be found alongside stone flooring featuring geometric patterns. There are 5 floors with rooms displayed around a wide skylight.
