Miniature Royal Chateau - French Renaissance Build

Our scaled architectural models are constructed to replicate the original building so precisely that is hard for anyone to discern the difference. Our artisans carefully handcraft every detail of the structure down to a tee, including a comprehensive paint job that expresses the condition, natural aging process and every little detail of the structure. Our artists can first create a painting of the proposed model or any idea you have in mind for a building, whether it be already existing or in your imagination. Pictured here we have a scaled model we built of the royal Chateau de Chambord at Chambord of Loir-et-Cher, France being one of the most recognizable chateaux in the world because of its very distinct French Renaissance architecture which blends traditional French medieval forms with classical Italian structures. Chateaux in the 16th-century departed from castle architecture; while they were off-shoots of castles, with features commonly associated with them, they did not have serious defences. Extensive gardens and water features, such as a moat, were common amongst chateaux from this period. Chambord is no exception to this pattern. The layout is reminiscent of a typical castle with a keep, corner towers, and defended by a moat. Built in Renaissance style, the internal layout is an early example of the French and Italian style of grouping rooms into self-contained suites, a departure from the medieval style of corridor rooms. The massive chateau is composed of a central keep with four immense bastion towers at the corners. The keep also forms part of the front wall of a larger compound with two more large towers. Bases for a possible further two towers are found at the rear, but these were never developed, and remain the same height as the wall. The château features 440 rooms, 365 fireplaces, and 84 staircases. Four rectangular vaulted hallways on each floor form a cross-shape. Some authors claim that the French Renaissance architect Philibert Delorme had a considerable role in the chateau's design, and others have suggested that Leonardo da Vinci may have designed it. While the original chateau is an amazing spectacle, our scaled model is still very impressive. Let us know if you would like a replica of this beautiful building or any other building or structure would like and we can custom build it for you to exact specifications. These models can be created and used for a variety of purposes that can only be limited by your imagination. Miniatures and models can also be used as contemporary art whereby artists use both scratch built miniaturizations or commercially manufactured models to construct a dialogue between object and viewer. The role of the artist in this type of miniature is not necessarily to recreate an historical event or achieve naturalist realism, but rather to use scale as a mode of articulation in generating conceptual or theoretical exploration.
