There is a long tradition of magnificent, luxurious residences built with security and defence in mind – think of the châteaux of France, England’s great castles or the schlosses that still grace central Europe.

Oppidum creates spaces that are totally secure and utterly discreet yet sumptuously appointed and entirely bespoke – all underground, within your own domain. You can be sure that you, your family and your most treasured possessions have a place of safety and comfort close at hand for as long as you need, whatever happens in the world outside.

Your stronghold

Your stronghold

Oppidum provides a place of safety in times of need. It offers new opportunities for meeting and entertaining clients and business associates, enjoying time with your family and immersing yourself in your prized collections, at your chosen place of residence.

Our experts will take care of the safety and security elements, leaving you to have complete freedom to specify every aspect of its interior design, creating a luxurious, hidden home that reflects your personal needs, tastes and desires.

Safeguard those you love most

Safeguard those you love most

Even the most valuable collections are, in the end, merely objects and artefacts that can be bought and sold. But your family are part of you. They are the axis your world revolves around, the ones for whom you would do anything, make any sacrifice, the people you love above all else and in whom you place your every hope, dream and ambition.

It’s natural and right, your first duty and deepest desire, to protect them. With an Oppidum retreat, you can insulate them from any and all physical dangers for as long as you need, with all the comfort, mental stimulation, opportunities for exercise and ways to relax they need to thrive.

Comfort without compromise

Comfort without compromise

Events may be disruptive, but within Oppidum life goes on uninterrupted. The interior is appointed to provide all the comfort, convenience and personal choice you’re accustomed to.

Generously proportioned rooms and substantial furniture give a feeling of spaciousness, while deep rugs, wood panelling and handmade tapestries create an atmosphere of quiet and calm. The real-flame gas fireplace adds movement as well as warmth; and with extensive shelving for your library and a high-definition video wall, you have everything you need to relax and leave the world outside.

Safe and sound

Safe and sound

You’ve worked hard over many years, taken risks, seized opportunities, made your vision a reality. Your reward is the means to acquire and curate all the beautiful, rare and precious objects you desire.

Accessible to you and your invited guests but impregnable to all others, the gallery is constructed to the same standards as bank vaults and meets the strictest insurance criteria. With state-of-the-art fire protection, ventilation, temperature and humidity control systems, it keeps your art, wine and other collections completely safe, in perfect condition and close to hand.

Parc Fermé

PARC FERMÉ

Some collectors are content for their classic cars and motorcycles to be exhibits, precious relics frozen in time, untouched and pristine. But for others, these magnificent machines, rare as they are, are to be enjoyed where they truly belong: on the road in all their splendour. The garage in your retreat can serve as a private museum or as a working space where your collection can be permanently charged up, fuelled and ready for action.

UNOBTRUSIVE TECHNOLOGY. UNRIVALLED PROTECTION

All the underlying technology that ensures your safety, security and wellbeing is hidden from view. Like the mechanism of a fine Swiss timepiece, it operates smoothly, seamlessly and reliably, quietly and constantly fulfilling its purpose while remaining unseen and untouched. One less concern in a turbulent and changing world.

The structure is designed and constructed to last for centuries (just like a castle), across several generations. This means a high level of service and maintenance of the facility.

The technology in Oppidum goes through generational upgrades to take full advantage of technological advances. This applies primarily to energy storage, power generators, the building management system (BMS) and security elements.

The Oppidum BMS contains an internal sub-system that operates and controls the emergency modes, CBRN filtration, CO2 removal, diesel generators, overpressure, oxygen level and more. The system enables transition to complete offline operation protected emergency mode instantly.

Luxury Underground

Entrance

A safe space defined entirely by you. Make a grand entrance

Walk up to the custom-made blast doors. A multi-biometric reader simultaneously scans your face, iris, palm and fingerprints. Naturally, it recognises you immediately. The doors open automatically.

Now step inside. You find yourself in a magnificent space, with ceilings soaring almost five metres overhead, decorated with opulent hand-crafted glass chandeliers and custom-made furniture and laid with fine-grained, solid wood flooring. It’s hard to believe you’re deep under the ground, surrounded by thick layers of reinforced concrete – especially when you catch the scent of fresh flowers from the inner garden. Welcome home. You have truly arrived.

An architect’s vision

L’Héritage is designed by leading French architect Marc Prigent, who trained at the École Boulle in Paris and runs his own practice west of the city.

He describes L’Héritage as ‘something entirely beyond any brief we have received for a secure space. It’s designed, ideated and created without compromise to be worthy of our clients and the objects they seek to enjoy, preserve and protect.’ His vision is to create the most secure residential spaces in the world, spaces of absolute purpose, engineering integrity and state-of-the-art technology. But they must also be a beautiful and cosseting environment for the owner: in Marc’s world, function does not have to mean compromise in elegance and style.

And since every Oppidum retreat is entirely bespoke, that style can be exactly as you wish. Some owners will favour a classical, opulent look; others may prefer a more modern, minimalist aesthetic. That is the true beauty of Oppidum: it is yours and yours alone.
