Here everything is geometry, rigour and yet voluptuousness. Once the foot has set in the intriguing Chevregny Castle, and as the visit progresses through the four levels of construction, fluid and symmetrical, the ghosts of the 1920s get back to life... (Aisne Nouvelle, August 2015).
The Château des Chaînées was built in the 1920s by Parisian architect Paul Robine, the unintended result of the destruction that occurred during the Nivelle offensive of May-June 1917. It set to music the wishes of the founding family of a house of English and modernist inspiration to the omnipresent geometric obsession. Playing with the light between transparency and reflections, Paul Robine creates a paradoxical work, both rooted in tradition and profoundly modern.
Although the Château des Chaînées is an assumed and impressionable setting, it was built with an economy of means and frugality that make it an exercise in anticipation of current 'low-tech' research.
The Château des Chaînées in its entirety and its park have been listed as Historical Monuments since November 2021.

The park is exceptionally open to visitors for the 2022 European Heritage Days. The owners offer a guided historical and architectural tour of the exteriors based on old photos and the plans of the architect.

About the location

Château des Chaînées
10, rue du Mont des vaches
  • Aisne
  • Hauts-de-France
The current Chaînées Castle is the result of the complete destruction of the village of Chevregny during the Nivelle offensive of April-June 1917: the first castle located in the immediate vicinity of the church and the houses of the village was thus completely razed leaving for only testimony the remains of a staircase with two entrances, mounted on two Roman columns. Abandoning the ruins of the old castle, the owners had a property rebuilt on the same estate with the help of the Parisian architect Paul Robine. Although many of the Chemin des Dames castles were rebuilt in styles that were pastichant those of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the chosen party was to rebuild a building fashionable of the day in a style close to the Arts & Crafts and Art Deco movements. The architect Paul Robine went out of his way to build a house with a keen sense of theatricality, the building gradually allowing itself to be discovered in an initiatory fireplace through the park.
