To adapt to the evolution of rail travel, the municipality of Deauville plans in 1911 to replace the station built in 1863 with a much larger building. The project, suspended in 1914, was put back on the agenda when the Armistice was announced. However, it was not until 1931 that the Minister of Public Works authorized the construction of the new station.
The architectural program imagined by Jean Philippot is part of regionalist modernity, as evidenced by the general volume and use of concrete, while incorporating the Norman style. This "normalization" is manifested by the pan of wood and the use of local materials (brick, Bavent tile). Their texture and color are matched by the red and yellow checkered brick covering that lines the platform floor.

Take the time to look at the details, including the two interior gables adorned in 1932 with two frescoes by Louis Houpin, one representing a map of Deauville-Trouville, the second a map of Normandy.
