The Baroque palace and gardens of Louis XIV were developed by a number of designers including Andre Le Notre and Louis Le Vau, the palace architect. Le Vau was in charge of remodeling the existing chateau without altering its basic lines; he was also asked to create an orangery. Le Brun was made responsible for the decoration of the chateau. Jules Hardouin-Mansart extended the palace following Le Vau's renovation and addition to the existing hunting lodge. Le Notre developed the plan to enlarge the gardens to a monumental scale with a large central axis and several transverse axes. Keywords: orangerie
