Former capital of the Dukes of Burgundy - 9th century AD. - and today the capital of the finest wines in the world - Clos Vougeot, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, etc. -, Dijon has been chosen, alongside Lyon, Paris and Tours, to defend and promote the "gastronomic meal of the French », entered the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2010 at UNESCO. We were appointed alongside Eiffage by Greater Dijon at the end of the AMI launched by the community, in order to implement its know-how and promote the local terroir within a city with international influence. Located at Km 0 of the Burgundy Grands Crus route, the International City of Gastronomy and Wine in Dijon - CIGV - opened its doors in May 2022 on the site of the former Hôtel-Dieu. On 6.5 hectares, the CIGV defines a new gateway to the city of Dijon and its region. A sentimental and cultural link between the people of Dijon and the General Hospital, part of a region that is emblematic for its gastronomy and its savoir-vivre, its unique program is based on all the heritage and landscape characteristics of the site in order to offer a comfortable place where culture , learning and leisure, come to life around a vast eco-district. Our architectural approach consists of weaving a dialogue between tradition and contemporaneity specific to French gastronomy, by associating the enhancement of historical elements with architectural programming.
The project highlights the local products, culture and architecture of this extraordinarily rich region through a “menu” that can be tasted every day. As the chef works to put the great landscape of gastronomy in the small landscape of the plate, our architecture is at the service of a unique and timeless menu through the encounter of history, gastronomy and the people who will live there. The "climats" of Burgundy represent the complex collaboration between Man and Nature giving rise to great wines. In a way, we aim to translate the exceptional flavor of wines into lasting and comfortable happiness. The art of the table is set up by the renaissance of the architecture of the Hôtel-Dieu. The vitality of the project is ensured by the diversity of its educational, cultural, festive and above all gastronomic programmes. This set is the link that allows the old center to emerge from the railway lines, themselves melted within an ecological corridor and pedestrian routes leading visitors to discover this unique place.
