Arqana auction house in Deauville, one of the most renowned auction houses for thoroughbred horses in the world, recently employed the skills of François Champsaur – the designer behind luxury hotel redesigns including The Metropolitan, Paris, to complete the renovation of it’s sales pavilion.
The result is a stunning arena characterised by graphic architectural design, noble materials and an aesthetic purity that echoes the values of the equestrian world.
Auction sales have been held at Deauville since 1887, whilst Arqana was established there in August 2006 and rapidly became a leading horse sales agency. In total 18 sales are held at Arqana each year, representing over 5,000 horses and 106 million euros. Deauville has been the stage for the sale of champion racehorses including winners of the Prix de L’Arc de Triomph.
In 2013, ARQANA Racing Club syndicate was launched to attract new owners and offer them a complete and unique experience of the racing world.
