Next days, the construction companies will start the demolition of the roof and the construction of skylights to bring light !

 

Beaulieu sports its finest colors

They’re here! The first signs of Beaulieu’s new visual identity are blossoming into life: new billboards, new logos and new, dynamic signage. Our visitors will be sure to spot them when they next stop by.

 

An iconic visual identity for Beaulieu

The Beaulieu Foundation is proud to introduce its all-new visual identity. Intended to promote the site in its entirety, the design signifies a revival for Beaulieu. A combination of the Foundation’s new missions and the arrival of its new partners has underlined the importance of presenting a coherent corporate identity and a uniform set of visuals to represent the site as a whole.

The new image is centered around an emblematic logo: elegant and modern, it evokes the front columns of the Palais de Beaulieu. Its different colored versions allow each entity to be separately identifiable, whilst remaining united through their common imagery. The Foundation is also launching a new website.
