The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, founded in Porto Cervo in 1967 and renowned for its organization of international regattas, is known the world over as an undeniable icon of luxury and prestige.
In 2003, the Clubhouse was extended and completely restyled under the watch of American architect Peter Marino. The result was what is now considered one of the most famous, modern and functional structures of its kind.
The imposing complex is characterized by large fixed and sliding bronze windows made by Astec in a customized manner with extruded Architectural Bronze, a resistant material suitable for a marine environment filled with salt air, pushing winds and humidity.
The intense work carried out alongside the world-renowned designer allowed for the creation of some special pieces, such as a horizontal sun shades with a duckboard effect, and shapes in line with a supporting steel structure and burnished copper alloy cladding, as well as teak and stainless-steel parapets with oval-shaped horizontal and vertical pipework.
