Old factory-school GHANDOUR, French Heritage monument to St simeon de bressieux
The construction of a factory for weaving silk in Saint-Simeon de Bressieux is one of the best examples of the industrial boom in Bas-Dauphiné in the second half of the 19th century. The current buildings were constructed between 1873 and 1875. After a peak (near thousand workers) in 1889, plant declined and closed in 1934. The factory was built in two parts linked it by a canopy. The canopy uses a metal type frame Patrick. Thin metal studs provide the interior space. The framing of openings (doors, Windows) is made of baked brick. The workers, sometimes from very far away, lived on the spot during the week: a Cité ouvrière has thus built in 1875 as an L-shaped plan. the north side has a central stem with triangular pediment
* to the South of the building, a part was reserved for the members of the management. The building is entirely built of Earth raw on a stone base, using the technique of the Pisa. The L-shaped plan determines a courtyard with a central basin sunny. In a corner of the Court, showers were installed.
