The Yacht Club De Monaco in Monte Carlo is the centerpiece of the remodeled harbor and it was designed by the Foster + Partners architectural practice next to the water’s edge to provide new sporting and social facilities.

Entrance to the complex is made via a glazed courtyard giving access to the first floor where the club room, bar restaurant and a swimming pool area located. On the next level there are office spaces for the executive staff and several cabins where the guests can rest.

On the top levels there are a range of event spaces with stepped terraces to offer expansive views of the nearby sea and of the formula 1 grand prix circuit. The glazed elevations on the upper levels can be opened and retractable fabric screens ensure shading. The range of the club varies from sailing boats to super yachts of up to 60 meters in length.
