Deauville-Trouville station

Often compared to the Pointe Noire station in Congo, the Deauville-Trouville station was designed by the same architect - Jean Philippot - in 1931.

Common in Deauville and Trouville, it is a network head station whose plan is logically organized in a U. Norman style by the use of local materials (bricks, Bavent tiles) and by the half-timbered, it n '' remains no less modern by its volumes - the semi-cylindrical hall - and the use of concrete.

Take the time to look at the details:
- the two frescoes produced by Louis Houpin, one representing a plan of Deauville-Trouville, the second a map of Normandy.
- the red and yellow cobblestones and the lights that line the quays
