The Foster + Partners “Yacht Club de Monaco” has recently opened in Monte Carlo, a new centerpiece for the area’s remodeled harbor. With its position directly at the water’s edge, the structure provides new social and sporting facilities that reflect the region’s status as the leading center for boating excellence in the world.

The complex is entered through a glazed courtyard, before arriving at the first floor which comprises an exclusive club room, bar restaurant and swimming pool. Above, there’s a double-height event space with executive offices and a series of “cabins” for visiting guests. The top floors accommodate a range of event spaces, while throughout there’s a series of stepped terraces offering expansive views out to sea, as well as inland over the Formula 1 Grand Prix Circuit. Sublime!
