The Saint-Rémi chapel is one of the only remains of the former Hôtel des Mousquetaires noirs, built in 1699-1701 by R. de Cotte on the plans of J. Hardouin-Mansart, and disused and sold in 1775. Cardinal Louis de Rohan bought it in 1780 as an administrator, to transfer the institution of the Blind of the Quinze-Vingts, founded rue Saint-Honoré by Saint Louis between 1254 and 1261. The Saint-Rémi chapel, which took over the name of the church on Rue Saint-Honoré, was enlarged in 1789 by three bays and a tribune, to accommodate some of the furniture from the former chapel on Rue Saint-Honoré. Looted and closed between 1793 and 1800, it was then rented to the City of Paris throughout the nineteenth century to house the parish of Saint-Antoine, branch of the church of Sainte-Marguerite while serving as a chapel for the hospice. During the reconstruction of the entire hospital between 1956 and 1966, the nave of the chapel was demolished and then rebuilt. Source
The organ was made by Benoit et Sarelot in 1986 from a design by André Isoir. Originally, it was the personal organ of Michel Chauvin, organist of Prytanée militaire de La Flèche. The organ was bought in 2014 by the "Centre Hospitalier National d'Ophtalmologie des Quinze-Vingts" and placed in the Chapelle Saint-Remi by Philippe Emeriau & Jean-Loup Boisseau.
