About

Built in 1937 by Pol Abraham and Henry Jacques Le Même, Martel de Janville is the last sanatorium to be built on the Plateau d'Assy. A real liner made of reinforced concrete, it belongs to the so-called "compact" group.

This building, in the form of a T, was formerly reserved for army officers. The facade, 120 metres long, is distinguished by its staggering asymmetric design.
The three wings are built around a dual-axis based on two semicircular entrances and surmounted by a sculptural conical chimney. The beauty of the building still lies in the dynamic contrast created between straight lines and curved shapes. The decoration of the chapel was painted in frescos by Angel Zarraga. Registered as a Historic Monuments, Martel de Janville is also labeled "20th Century Heritage ."
