Renovation of Hôtel Turgot

In a constant concern for the preservation and conservation of the Fondation Custodia – of its collections but also of its buildings – its director, Ger Luijten, has undertaken a series of important works over the past ten years.

Guided by the desire to cultivate what has been entrusted to the Fondation’s team, he has endeavoured to restore the interior of the Hôtel Turgot by rethinking the decoration, lighting and hanging of each of its salons.

In this video, he invites us to discover this 18th-century hôtel particulier which houses the collections of the Fondation Custodia and where those who look after them work on a daily basis.
