DEAUVILLE TROUVILLE STATION

Shared by Deauville and Trouville-sur-Mer, it is a network head station, linking Lisieux and Paris Saint-Lazare stations daily, all year round.

In order to adapt to the evolution of rail travel, the municipality of Deauville envisaged in 1911 replacing the station built in 1863 with a much larger building. The project, which was 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 in line with the regionalist modernity, as shown by the general volume and the use of concrete, while integrating the Norman style. This "Normanization" is manifested by the wood panelling and the use of local materials (brick, Bavent tile). Their texture and color is matched by the red and yellow checkerboard brick cladding that lines the floor of the docks.

Take time to admire the details, including the two interior gables decorated in 1932 with two frescoes by Louis Houpin, one depicting a map of Deauville-Trouville, the second a map of Normandy.
