Lavirotte Building

Recommendation by Lemi

The Art Nouveau movement is so intertwined with La Belle Epoque that the era is defined by this aesthetic. Take Lavirotte Building as a prime example. Architect Jules Lavirotte designed several buildings in the Seventh Arrondissement, and the apartment building at 29 Avenue Rapp is the one that remains the most popular. It stands out from the lane of traditional townhouses with peacocks, wreaths, and serene busts decorating the facade. Windows also peek out to the street in irregular forms. Lavirotte used textured ceramic tiles by a notable manufacturer of the time, Alexandre Bigot. View the entire work of art in all its splendor from across Avenue Rapp.
