Former Hospital of Meursault’s Restoration / JUNG Architectures

The former Hospital of Meursault, commonly called la Léproserie (Leprosarium), was founded by Hughes II, Duke of Burgundy, at the beginning of the 12th century, in the Côte d’Or (Gold Coast) of Burgundy. In 1760, the Hospital became associated with the Hospice of Beaune by royal order of King Louis XV. Then, in the 19th century, the buildings were converted into an agricultural farm. They have been included in the Supplementary Inventory of Historic Monuments since 1926.  The state into which these buildings had fallen, abandoned and almost in ruins, left only a part of their original layout. JUNG Architectures worked on the restoration of this heritage site in Meursault, France — via ArchDaily
