|In autumn 2017 the new Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech (mYSLm) will open its doors, housing an important selection from the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent’s impressive collection.
The building has been designed by the French architecture firm Studio KO. Founded by Olivier Marty and Karl Fournier, that have completed numerous residential and public projects around the world.
Situated on Rue Yves Saint Laurent, adjacent to the famous Jardin Majorelle, the new building spans over 4,000 m2 showcasing Yves Saint Laurent’s work within an original scenography designed by Christophe Martin, and including a vast range of spaces and services. Curves and straight lines outside. Luminous, velvety and smooth inside. The building, built of terracotta, concrete and Maroccan stone fragments, blends harmoniously with its surroundings.
