Each project has forged us so that today we use our experiences and our know-how to work with carpentry companies, master builders, project managers, architects as well as with individuals.
Our workshop was consulted by Menuiserie Bressan Frères from Gascogne for the manufacture of cremone bolts with solid brass buttons. Clients are passionately renovating uninhabited spaces for over 100 years. You can follow their adventures on Instagram.
To renovate their Haussmann apartment, our clients worked with the architects from the GCG firm. To equip the windows, our workshop was invited to create custom-made solid brass espagnolette bolts based on the dimensions of the new joinery already installed on site. The result is appreciated. The colours and materials of the hardware give the apartment its own character. In addition, the whole is in harmony with the restored mouldings on the walls.
To finish the project, our workshop, having the necessary know-how, produced the grilles for the floor radiators.
In the last photo you will find the detail on the espagnolette handle. Customers sent us a photo of the handle taken at the Palace of Versailles. Our workshop was inspired by this photo to provide the first prototype. Once the model was validated by the customers and their architects, and after several discussions with the joinery manufacturer and the installer, we launched the production. For handles and their supports. We used solid brass to produce handles and their supports, we polished it. The rods of the espagnolette bolts were made from solid steel, brushed and treated by the black oxide finishing.
Collaboration with the renovation company based in Paris: AS Concept. The cremone bolts equip the beautiful wooden joinery in a high-end apartment in Paris. You can notice the Hungarian “points” parquet.
We present to you a very beautiful complete restoration of the fortified house which dates from the 15th century. Our workshop had the honour of participating by supplying dozens of custom-made espagnolette bolts. Several phases of this project await the owner of this building to finally welcome cultural events, the idea is to propose spaces for the public.
The architect specialising in heritage conservation, Mr Stefan Gunther, led the restoration work on Gunnebo Castle. Thanks to his knowledge and our shared know-how, we have created beautiful espagnolette bolts and hinges. In 2024, a book will be published to cover the history of the whole project.

Classified as historic monuments since 1990
In 2013, the Hôtel de Caumont underwent numerous major restoration works. Our workshops participated in this work by manufacturing beautiful cremone bolts for the patio doors. The joinery was carried out by the company based in Lentilly near Lyon, Les Métiers du bois.
The photos were taken in summer 2020, so 7 years after receiving the work, we are still proud of the result.
This castle built in the 14th century with its beautiful French gardens, is listed as a historical monument, represents a real gem in the centre of Crolles in Isère region. Photo taken during the European Heritage Days in 2022. The owner was happy to explain the history of the monument and answer all the questions from many visitors.
We are proud of this project for different reasons, also because we created a series of custom-designed espagnolette bolts. Little secret information: our workshop has produced beautiful engravings on the handles of the espagnolette bolts. The Bernis family has owned this castle since 1810.
Manufacturing of the espagnolette bolts in 2020 for the project located in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. The renovation of this prestigious apartment was carried out by the company specialised in renovation work, SQUARE-RENOVATION. The joinery was equipped with custom-made espagnolette bolts made-to-measure in our workshops. Then the professional team from SQUARE RENOVATION took care of the installation directly on the site.
To equip the wooden joinery, the solid brass handles were chosen to accompany the Hungarian point parquet flooring, the mouldings and many other characteristic elements for the Haussmannian apartments.
