©Fondation Carmignac

The location chosen to house the foundation is the heart of the island, in a pre-existing building surrounded by a park punctuated by olive trees, eucalyptus plants and vineyards.

The change of use for this provençal country house calls for a re-design of the rooms to control the light, critical to displaying and preserving the works on display, and to design diverse public areas to control the flow of visitors and accommodate the public in optimal conditions. There will be a harmonious relationship between the traditional architecture of the exterior and the contemporary interior, achieved largely through the layout of the exhibition space, providing ideal spaces for immersing oneself in the works of art.

The initial design for the building was by Marc Barani and the work will be carried out by GMAA agency.
