Castle Design: Château De Chambord Castle
The Château de Chambord in Loire-et-Cher, France is a magnificent site. Chambord is the largest château in the Loire Valley, it was built to serve as a hunting lodge for King François I. Chambord was built in the 16th century, and is well known for its French Renaissance architecture. (ABOVE) I love this photograph of the castle. The way the sun hits the castle as well as the castle's reflection on the water is breathtaking. I like how both sides of the castle mirror each other. (BELOW 1) An aerial view of the castle calls to attention its grand scale. I like the clean cut lawn and simple landscaping, however, beautiful gardens and a lush courtyard would enhance the castle's appeal. (BELOW 2) A close up of the roof, reveals its magnificent details. I find the roof to be the focal point of the castle. The roof looks like the skyline of a beautiful city or town. What do you love about the Château de Chambord?
