The Palais de l'Élysée (Élysée Palace) is the official home of the President of France. It was built in 1722, between the Grande Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré: a small road leading to the village of Roule, and the Champs-Élysées, by architect Armand-Claude Mollet. The structures are a prime example of the classical style. There's an entrance vestibule running along the ceremonial courtyard and gardens, a long central building, a State, apartment divided down the middle by a large salon that opens out onto the garden. In the early 1880s, the National Assembly issued a decree designating the Élysée as the Residence of the French President, and it is a potent symbol of the French Republic.
