JUNG Architectures converted this old building that once was a leper hospital into a gallery. The project is located in the Burgundy, France and was originally built in the 12th century as a hospital for the people who suffered from leprosy. It was renovated many times until the 19th century, when it became an agricultural farm. Architects removed the majority of the building’s walls. Together with heritage architect Simon Buri, JUNG Architectures firstly rebuild the walls and internal structure of the gallery, in order to create a multifunction space for exhibitions. Secondly, they added the extension to the building, whose main function will be for the wine tasting. When not used for that, it will host public event of town’s council. Thirdly, they used traditional construction methods on restoring the old building.
