The Colonial Heritage is the subject of misconceived interpretations when exploring the historical legacy of French Algeria. The present research interrogates the complexity of the French strategies and the emergence of various architectural styles within the colonial context. The rehabilitation of the Sheridan Villa into an art residency emphasizes the aspirations of the study, from the architectural survey of the monument; to the monograph of its historical evolution, the results indicate severe cases of humid and physical pathologies menacing the stability of the construction. A significant number of similar monuments are dilapidated and hence call for coherent interventions; to upgrade their state of conservation.
