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