Studio KO tease first detailed images of Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech museum

French architecture firm Studio KO have teased the first design images of their forthcoming Yves Saint Laurent museum in Marrakech, Morocco.

The renderings reveal a terracotta brick structure, formed of curved lines and straight edges.

The building will span 4,000sq m (43,000sq ft) on a site next to the city’s Jardin Majorelle – a garden much loved by Saint Laurent, who was a regular visitor to Marrakech before his death in 2008.

The museum will house a collection of accessories, haute couture garments, sketches, collection boards, photographs and objects collected by Saint Laurent between 1962 and 2002.

Studio KO have designed permanent and temporary exhibition spaces, an auditorium, a research library and a café and restaurant.

The museum is scheduled to open in Q3 2017, coinciding with the opening of a Paris branch in the designer’s studio of 30 years.

Both projects have been commissioned by the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, which owns the designer’s collection.

Announcing the museum plans earlier this year, the foundation’s president – and Saint Laurent’s life partner – Pierre Bergé said: “When Yves Saint Laurent discovered Marrakech in 1966, he was so moved by the place that he decided to buy a house and regularly go back there.

“It feels perfectly natural, 50 years later, to build a museum dedicated to his oeuvre, which was so inspired by this country.”

Studio KO, led by architects Olivier Marty and Karl Fournier, have had an office in Marrakech for over a decade.
