Hôtel Lambert

Interesting
The mansion of Lambert de Thorigny, president of the Chambre des Comptes, alias "Lambert the Rich", was built in 1640 by Le Vau and decorated by Le Sueur and Le Brun. Since 2007, it has been owned by Sheikh Abdallah Ben Abdallah, uncle of the current Emir of Qatar. Some of the restoration work undertaken has proved highly controversial. Parts of the decors are conserved in the Louvre. During summer 2013, a serious fire damaged the mansion and slowed down the works in progress.
