Guardian Glass was specified for almost all parts of the buildings, notably the new Canopée (skylight) and the buildings’ double skin facades.

The Grand Hôtel-Dieu was originally a public hospital that operated for more than eight centuries in the city of Lyon. In 2018, after six years of renovation, the hotel is deemed a Monument Historique (national heritage site) and is considered the most important privately-led conversion project of an historic monument in France. In addition to the luxury hotel, it houses boutiques, offices and restaurants, as well as the now public historical gardens.

Didier Repellin, from the architectural firm RL & Associés, oversaw the project. As honorary Chief Architect of Historical Monuments and a member of the French Heritage Society (among other titles), he was the perfect choice for the renovation of the buildings and the grounds. His vision was to make use of the history of the city to embellish the ancient buildings and has done so by respecting the history of the Hôtel-Dieu while giving back the grounds to the inhabitants of Lyon.

Guardian Glass was specified for almost all parts of the buildings, notably the new Canopée (skylight) and the buildings’ double skin facades. Made with Guardian SunGuard® SN 70/37 Ultra, the Canopée overlooks the inner courtyard and gives light to the renovation works, while the windows and facades of the hotel and boutiques have all been fitted with Guardian SunGuard® HD Neutral 67 to allow for an ideal balance between light transmission and solar factor.
