Our project is to dedicate the entire Vieux-Château and the Archive Tower to the promotion of Fine Craft, through a craft centre dedicated to craftworkers (business incubator, training and meeting place) and a transmission centre for the general public (educational workshops, exhibitions, conferences).
This complex is intended to be an innovative, sustainable and ambitious project, with a regional focus, a place of transmission, at the service of the arts and crafts and the general interest, fully in keeping with the times. The stakes are heritage, economic, cultural and social. This project makes it possible to :
As far as the Archive Tower is concerned, its reopening to the public would make it possible to integrate it into the project for a centre for fine crafts and to bring it closer to its vocation of the last 250 years: the conservation and transmission of archives.
In this respect, several projects can be envisaged. The Tower could accommodate :
The restoration of the Archive Tower and the ramparts is also a major challenge for the city: it will provide a better understanding of the old medieval city and offer a new route for walking and discovery, notably via the creation of a lane along the ramparts, a subject currently being discussed with the Quintin town council.
The analysis of the Chaillot School in particular has made it possible to rediscover all the interest and centrality of these major architectural elements.
Suite aux dernières annonces gouvernementales, le château de Quintin est contraint de rester fermé jusqu’à nouvel ordre. Nous mettons à profit cette période de fermeture pour avancer sur les chantiers de restauration (vieux-château, tour des archives), sur nos partenariats universitaires, mais aussi l’entretien du parc ou encore la mise en ligne de notre boutique à retrouver ici : chateau de quintin, producteur local en vente directe – local.ht !
A très bientôt nous espérons !
Following the latest measures announced by the government, the Château de Quintin is exceptionally closed to visitors until further notice.
