A new real estate project, set to be located at 19 boulevard du Larvotto, received unanimous support during a meeting at Monaco’s Town Hall. The Larvotto Superior construction will house 35 state-owned apartments and a data centre. The new building should be complete by 2027, with construction beginning at the end of February.
Call for submissions won by Monegasque architect Benjamin Boisson
In the summer of 2022, a competition was launched for architects as part of the National Housing Plan. Designs for a state housing building on a plot of land with multiple constraints were judged by a team of jurors for quality of housing, urban integration, landscaping and green architecture. Submissions were also judged for “HQE approach” (High Environmental Quality) and BD2M minimum “silver” level recognition.
The winner was Monegasque architect Benjamin Boisson (Atelier Boisson + Boisson Architectes) with a project that presents a central opening, a facade with a vegetated mesh and landscape work on several levels. (Atelier Boisson + Boisson Architectes is founded and directed by Benjamin Boisson and Isabella Boisson.)
Budget of 45 million euros
The building was submitted to the Municipal Council for a vote during a session led by Camille Svaraand and went through with unanimous support. The small plot of between L’Estoril and La Radieuse will soon be home to 25 two-roomed apartments, seven three-roomed apartments and three four-roomed apartments over ten floors.
Monaco Telecom’s data centre
The lower levels will house a 1550 m2 data centre for Monaco Telecom. The Larvotto Superior project gained a shower of compliments from the Municipal Council l during the session. Elected official Georges Gambarini stated that it is probably one of the most beautiful projects submitted to the Municipal Council since the start of the mandate. Construction is expected to last 39 months and will begin on 21 February.
