The Palais Dobrée and the Manoir JeanV, as iconic objects of the Dobrée museum, are presented without alteration, as collector's items. The garden becomes their base and forms a setting for an urban scenography.
Beyond their protection under the “Nantes heritage” in the urban regulations, the Palais Dobrée and the JeanV manor house are essential elements of the Nantes urban landscape, which the project aims to strengthen and renew, to reveal and to invigorate.
