Since its foundation in 1188, the Hôtel-Dieu has watched over the health of the people of Marseille. This urban beacon overlooking the Old Port has just replaced its ghost ship appearance with the sumptuous attire of a flagship of the high-end hotel industry flying the InterContinental flag.


The challenge of this new design for the Hôtel-Dieu is coupled with a challenge of urban recomposition that must re-establish the link between the former hospital enclosure and the city, between the Old Port and the Panier district, between the history and the future, heritage and modernity.
