Rehabilitation of a private hôtel particulier to accommodate a mixed programme.

The Hôtel Particulier, located in the heart of historic Lyon, is listed as a Historic Monument. The renovation of this 18th century hotel was carried out according to a resolutely contemporary architectural approach while respecting the original character of the building.

This mixed-use development includes three private dwellings, including thermal baths and basement cellars, as well as three annexed dwellings. Offices and a basement car park have also been installed. The transformation of the main courtyard and the garden was carried out according to geometric precepts which favour the intimacy of the place and contribute to reinforcing the spirit of the place.

In order to recover the original appearance of the building, the double metal door of the porch facing the street was converted into a solid door with wooden panels. All the roofs were restored to their original state. The mechanical tiles were replaced by round tiles. The original wooden joinery has been restored. The facades are coated with lime plaster followed by a whitewash.

The interior spaces are divided into nine floors. Offices are located alongside various living spaces. For the interior design, the design studio created several unique pieces.

The six-legged table consists of a bronze-finish metal base and a Calacatta stone top.

The extension table is a set of two dining tables, each with six place settings. The extension leaves room for thirteen place settings. The satin-finished solid walnut base is combined with a satin-finished carbon fibre top.

The oval table has been designed with a brushed stainless steel base and a matt varnished brushed walnut panel. The top is made of white fibreglass with a satin resin finish.
