In the exceptional site of Vézelay, registered by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and just in front of Saint Peter's Basilica, the Regional Council of Burgundy has entrusted our office with the rehabilitation and extension of the former hospice with the aim of creating the pole of Vocal Art of Burgundy.
This ambitious project results in the creation of an independent auditorium with a modular stage, two mixed rehearsal and broadcast rooms with a capacity of one hundred spectators as well as several rehearsal studios. This complex is accompanied by a resource center, an administrative center, a restaurant and conviviality room and several apartments for artists' residences.
The work of integration into the context of the traditional building has included the repair of masonry structures dry stone apparatus and the development of several outdoor spaces in gardens.
The place now renamed "City of the voice" is mainly animated by Arsys Burgundy group.
