Chateau de Noisy‘s Gothic design gives it the foreboding appearance of an abandoned insane asylum or sanatorium, but this amazing structure was actually used as an orphanage before closing its doors in 1991. Designed by an English architect, the now abandoned building was originally named Chateau Miranda and was reportedly occupied by Nazi forces during the Second World War. In more recent times the crumbling building and its overgrown grounds have become the domain of urban explorers, extensively documented on urbex forums and across the blogosphere. This article explores the abandonment through an excellent series of images by photographer Henri-Paul S.
