The Mediterranean Sea was one of the most important guidelines for this project since its first conception. Each floor is surrounded by balcony gardens, turning the outdoor view into an extension of the indoor area. In the form of sand-colored limestone solids, these balcony gardens carefully embed the building into its urban context, mingling with Monaco’s traditional light-colored plaster façades with large terraces. At the same time, and arranged composition varying the heights of these solids on its curved façade introduces an iconic building and a contemporary architectural language into this predominantly Beaux-Arts quarter of Monaco.
