Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, acquired the 9,300m² property in May 2018. Consisting of three private mansions, its name, Renaissance, was inspired by the ambitions of Ardian, architectural firm CALQ and decorator Tristan Auer to create an exceptionally unique and modern space in an exclusive and sought-after location.
Swiss gallery Hauser & Wirth, famous for its modern and contemporary art collection, had spent 15 years searching for the perfect location to establish itself in Paris, which is renowned for its rich cultural scene and the Paris+ contemporary art fair by Art Basel. Hauser & Wirth fell under the spell of this unique building, which met all of its criteria. The gallery will exhibit a range of artists at the heart of the capital in one of the private mansions.
Hauser & Wirth will be joined by an exclusive Japanese fashion house. Its owners were attracted to Renaissance by its prime location and design, reminiscent of the most illustrious Parisian haute couture addresses.
"It is a great source of pride for Ardian’s Real Estate teams to have envisioned and delivered this project alongside the teams at CALQ and Tristan Auer. The trust that the building’s future tenants have placed in us is testament to the success of our ambition to create a unique and timeless place in the heart of Paris. Renaissance reflects the beauty and creativity that characterize Paris – the capital of fashion, art and culture." Stéphanie Bensimon, Head of Real Estate, Ardian
