Rogers scoops Monte Carlo jackpot

  • Comment

The government of millionaire’s playground Monaco has chosen Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSH+P) to redevelop the heart of Monte Carlo

Designed in collaboration with local architect Alexandre Giraldi, the project will see the existing Art Deco Sporting D’Hiver conference centre replaced by three new blocks.

The impressive Salle des Arts from the existing 1932 building will be recreated within the scheme which features seven ‘pavilions’ housing 4,850²m of shops, 36 luxury apartments,  4,500m² of offices, 3,000m² of conference facilities and exhibition space. Around 500 car parking spaces will also be provided.

Ivan Harbour of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, said: ‘The current building had become very underused and we explored options that ranged from complete retention of the existing structure to demolition and new build. We settled on a scheme that incorporated a broad mix of activities to reinvigorate central Monte Carlo.

‘The principle urban move was to create a major new pedestrianised street lined with shops, restaurants and a public art gallery. Above the shops, the adjacent Hotel de Paris is extended with serviced apartments and offices.’

The project is due to complete in 2016.
