A historical anchorage

The Hôtel de Cantobre was built in 1706 for François-Alphonse Hénault de Cantobre, a general farmer. After successive waves of occupation, the building was restored and enlarged by the addition of a modern wing designed by architect Yves Lion during the 1990s. The facades on the street, the ironwork and the central staircase, representative of classical architecture, have been preserved and are listed as historical monuments.

Spaces available to hire

  • The courtyard of honor (cocktails, introductory words): from May to October, it allows the organization of a welcome drink or a reception and serves the building thanks to its staircase of honor.
  • The salon (meetings, juries, board meetings, breakfasts, cocktails): a meeting room and office for the director of the MEP, the space combines the charm of 18th century apartments with contemporary furniture and a beautiful view of the paved courtyard.
  • The studio (cocktails, breakfasts): a space dedicated to young creation, it allows the discovery of emerging artists for their first institutional exhibition and can be combined with the lounge or the courtyard.
  • The exhibition galleries (evenings, cocktails, film shoots, fashion shows, award ceremonies): served by the interior grand staircase, they have two floors of very spacious rooms and can accommodate large buffets, complete with tray service.
  • The workshops (activities linked to the auditorium, evenings): they include an educational space, a large central room with artists' videos and a room dedicated to the collection which combines the charm of the old stone with a very contemporary design.
