“The building remained empty, until the mansion was sold to the Banque de France in 1919 to become one of its branches. The rehabilitation works were made by architect Alphonse Defrasse between 1919 and 1921, and by interior decorator Jansen. It was listed historic monument by a bylaw of April 12, 1999. At the end of 2014, the Banque de France will open a Cité de l'économie et de la monnaie in the building. It will be a place dedicated to the discovery of economic concepts. The winning team that will carry the project is constituted by Ateliers Lion (Yves Lion) for the architecture, François Confino for the museography, and Eric Pallot as specialist of historic monuments.” (Hôtel Gaillard, Wikipedia)
