The Shipowner’s House - one of the last traces of 18th century Le Havre - is one of the jewels of the city’s urban heritage, and a vital link in the collective memory of its people.
The house was built in the 1790s by architect Thibault for his personal use, according to a highly original design and a remarkable decorative scheme.
The house features every late-18th century architectural style, but its outstanding feature is its central, octagonal light shaft.
