The town hall of Annecy is a fine example of the neoclassical architecture that develops on the Savoy territories between 1815 and 1860 while they belong to the kingdom directed by the King of Sardinia, head of the House of Savoy.
In the first half of the 19th century, when Annecy was part of the Kingdom headed by the King of Sardinia, head of the House of Savoy, the municipality launched the project to build a new town hall
In 1836, the municipal council asked the Geneva architect Samuel Vaucher-Crémieux for a development project. It is finally abandoned because of its importance.
The Sardinian neoclassical architecture
In 1846, the plan of the present town hall was adopted. Designed by François Justin, its architecture is characterized by imposing proportions and in particular its central forepart with its monumental columns and triangular pediment. All these elements link the edifice to the group of the numerous neoclassical architectures supported by the kingdom of Sardinia.
In 1995, to accompany the creation of an underground car park, the layout of the Town Hall Square was realized on the initiative of the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte who proposed in particular an overflow basin.
