Built in the eighteenth century in Boulogne-Billancourt, Buchillot castle now houses the Musée Paul Belmondo. Transformed and designed by architects Karine Chartier and Thomas Corbasson, the museum gives pride to the works of the artist, featuring busts, sculptures, medals and
signed drawings Paul Belmondo. The works are well exposed in a white space, neutral and clean. Multiplying niches, windows and double height, architecture widens and deforms to accommodate the works and staging. A little further on, visitors will flow through the thickness of the walls, decorated with wood shelving with multiple referring reserves and curiosity cabinets, revealing a large number of drawings and medals.
