Reims in Marne, Grand Est, France
Quartier des Banques
Banking district. Buildings from the 20's.
The 1920s saw several banks relocate to this area of the city. In 1923, at the southwest corner of Rue Carnot, architect André Narjoux constructed, for Crédit Lyonnais, an imposing facade with columns, pilasters and balconies, including a rounded corner entrance that entered into a large hall with Doric columns and glass covered arches. The architect Emile Dufay-Lamy, endowed by the Chapuis bank, constructed a monumental building at No. 14 Rue Carnot, inspired by nineteenth century art and displaying mythological statues.
