The creator of the Neo-Norman regionalist style
Rue Baumier in Houlgate pays homage to Jacques Claude Baumier, born in Sablé-sur-Sarthe in 1824 and died in Caen in 1886. This Norman architect is considered by specialists in classical French architecture as the creator of the Neo-Norman regionalist style. It was he who drew up the first urban plan for the seaside resort of Houlgate and built its Grand Hôtel (1859), its church, and its first holiday homes (Le Petit Manoir 1860, La Villa de la Mouche 1875 ). His architectural work includes other villas, castles, estates, and mansions located in the Calvados department, several of which are listed as Historical Monuments.
