The successful regeneration of Cour Bareuzai heritage site in Dijon, France

New images* capture the popularity of the Cour Bareuzai retail and F&B urban regeneration scheme in Dijon since it opened in November 2019.

Designed by Chapman Taylor, the project involved the beautiful and sensitive renovation of a 17th/18th century mansion house building formerly used as offices for Dijon's local authorities.

The aim of our design was to repurpose the heritage buildings to give them a new lease of life and to help re-energise this area of Dijon city centre.

The context-sensitive scheme creates 2,300m² of attractive and welcoming, high-end retail and restaurant space across three floors for the UNESCO World Heritage-designated city centre, designed to blend harmoniously with their surroundings. A wall which blocked views to the historic buildings was demolished.

This rewarding urban renewal project has created a vibrant street scene from morning to late evening, helping to bring social and economic life to the area in a manner sensitive to its history.

Chapman Taylor has many years’ experience delivering schemes within heritage or historical settings. The maintenance and renewal of the physical fabric of historic towns involves a broad range of skills, from strategic planning and detailed technical advice to the sensitive design of new buildings and the repair, alteration and extension of existing buildings.
