Le Petit Château, Chantilly (Oise)

Brullant built the Petit Château for the Constable Montmorency's castle at Chantilly about 1557-59. Seen from the outside it consists of a long, rather low building linking two higher pavilions at right angles to it. Structurally it consists of two equal floors but their existence is in part masked by the use of a single Order.

The photo shows the entrance façade of the building.
