Hauser & Wirth art gallery within The One Monte-Carlo

This 10-week fit-out project, delivered on behalf of contemporary and modern art gallery, Hauser & Wirth, involved creating a new space for the Swiss firm inside The One Monte-Carlo, a vibrant new district which is home to shopping, culture, and lots of luxury real estate.

Hauser & Wirth Monte Carlo was looking to create an art gallery integrated into the area’s existing conference centre – which would remain independent in terms of access and operation.

With over 500 sqm of space to fit-out, the scope of works encompassed a significant amount of masonry – including 400 sqm of cladding inside the large gallery space. And, with a floor to ceiling height of just 7m in places, the team worked hard to overcome challenging access within the confined space.

The Agilité team also created a showroom and reception area, complete with annexes, bathrooms, and storage space, alongside a small pantry, and an impressive 94 sqm feature staircase, complete with four landings of 18 sqm each.

With the gallery’s lighting project designed by L’Observatoire International in New York (USA), the team was also required to ensure each space within the building could manage the lighting – as well as enabling automation of particular features.

As is often the case with evolving projects, our initial brief involved painting two of the exhibition spaces but, as the delivery progressed, we also took care of updating the décor throughout the gallery’s entirety. Our joinery specialists also manufactured a pair of swivel doors in order to separate the reception and shop from the larger showroom and private lounge.

Konrad Breznik, Executive Director and COO at Hauser & Wirth said: “The Agilité team has been a pleasure to work with and collaborated brilliantly with other teams which were involved in the delivery. It has not been an easy task to manage all stakeholders and suppliers in the middle of the pandemic – particularly given the remote nature of our concept architect and lighting designer, who were in the USA.

We were incredibly impressed and are already looking forward to starting work on our second project with Agilité!” 

The client also found the existing wooden parquet floor was light and uninspiring, meaning a key component of the architect’s brief was to enhance the wood in order to give warmth to the space. We stained the entirety of the floor, while being mindful of not letting the intricacies underfoot become a focal feature.
