He also designed the unusual choir of the church of St. Etienne in Beauvais. He was honored by the French and they named a street after him in Paris, fr:Rue Chambiges. It is one of the top residential streets in Paris which is behind Avenue Montaigne in the Golden Triangle. He was the father of Pierre Chambiges and is buried in Beauvais Cathedral.[2]
