The stones of Vilhonneur and Massangis at the service of heritage

This 17th century building, denatured during a transformation into a hospital in the 1980s, has been entirely restored into a prestigious hotel by architects Sébastien Desroches and ATELIER 2A + for Valvital.

Polycor provided the Vilhonneur stone for the interior staircase and the Massangis stone of the exterior paving in Roman opus. An elegant reconversion led by speakers with highly technical know-how: the Ateliers Dunod Mallier ironworkers for the ironwork ramp, the landscape designer Louis Benech Louis Benech for the development of outdoor spaces or the Vicentini workshop for the laying of stones for the monumental staircase.

“This old building of 2500m², located in the Urban and Landscaped Architectural Heritage Protection Zone, in the heart of the old upper town of Lectoure, was transformed into a hospital in the 1980s. This operation completely changed the interior spaces of the hotel. building and erased the traces of its past. This hotel project, carried out in partnership with my colleague Gilles Lefébure from Atelier 2A + in Versailles, aims to take advantage of the program and the multiple constraints to give a soul to this building, like the rich heritage that surround it.
