Monaco Yacht Club launches

Monaco Yacht Club launches

Monaco’s new Yacht Club has opened forming the centrepiece of the remodelled harbour.

Designed by Foster + Partners in response to the local climate, the new clubhouse is highly sustainable. The building is powered by renewable energy and incorporates photovoltaic cells, solar thermal panels and sea water cooling systems to take advantage of the sun and waterfront site.

The architecture is a celebration of sailing offering large, deck-like terraces along the harbour to offer views out to races at sea, as well as views inland over the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit.

Facilities include a club room, bar restaurant and swimming pool, event spaces, executive offices and a series of ‘cabins’ for visiting guests. The yacht club is built on reclaimed land and extends the harbour to the east - the new YCM Marina can accommodate a range of craft, including sailing boats, and has 26 berths for 25-60m super yachts.

“The building is a little like a city in microcosm, with schools, parks, offices, restaurants, a network of interior circulation ‘streets’ and a hierarchy of public and private, social and functional spaces. It is a continuation of Monaco’s dense urban fabric, as well as the Yacht Club’s traditions and will be an important part of civic life,” says Lord Foster.
