It could not be rebuilt on its original location, on the Edict of Nantes square, because Gigant street was to be aligned.  On the 30th of September 1956, the foundation stone was laid by Victoire Durand-Gasselin, a Protestant woman architect from Nantes, who also designed the building. It was dedicated in 1958 by pastor Louis Matiffa.
