The name ‘Mareterra’ is inspired by the two complementary elements of the project: the sea and the land. Developed using pioneering, sustainable building techniques, Mareterra lies at the heart of the Principality’s future growth.
This transformational land reclamation project will be a natural extension of the principality, offering discerning investors a collection of elegant apartments, townhouses, penthouses, and a limited number of exquisite villas.
“I wanted this new area to embody the excellence and conviviality which distinguish the Principality of Monaco so well. Mareterra will integrate perfectly with our shoreline, and in a few years will be seen as a natural extension of our territory.” HSH PRINCE ALBERT II OF MONACO
Sustainability is at the heart of Mareterra, Monaco’s first eco-district. To align with Prince Albert II’s aim of ensuring the principality is carbon neutral by 2050, Portier Cove Monaco boasts the latest green technology.
At the heart of Mareterra are green open spaces designed by Michel Desvigne to enable residents to reconnect with nature. These tranquil spaces will feature lush native foliage, including mature trees, flowering plants, and shrubs, offering not only a place to enjoy a relaxing moment of respite from busy day-to-day lives, but also to enjoy shade from the Mediterranean sun.Additionally, these beautifully landscaped areas will also encourage wildlife to flourish, including specially installed insect hotels and bird nests, helping the eco-development to be at one with nature. Portier Cove Monaco will be predominantly pedestrianised, offering a safe and healthy space for residents to explore.
Mareterra has been painstakingly designed and developed by a group of visionaries, including award-winning architects, engineers, designers, and ecologists. Central to the design of Portier Cove Monaco are two award-winning architectural firms; Valode & Pistre Architects, and Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
Valode & Pistre Architects was founded in 1980 and is one of France’s most highly regarded architectural practices. Its founders, Denis Valode and Jean Pistre, are passionate about creating environments that embrace human elements with the natural world.
Renzo Piano Building Workshop is a global architectural practice, recognised the world over for its work. The practice was established by Italian Renzo Piano, one of the world’s most preeminent architects, known for his open and contemporary designs. This is reflected in Mareterra.
“When you grow up by the sea, it becomes an essential part of who you are.” — Renzo Piano
The marina is designed as a focal point of Mareterra, echoing the importance of ports in the principality. It will accommodate around 15 berths, and its design will ensure it is a hive of activity, surrounded by shops and restaurants. The marina will offer the ideal destination to gather with friends and family and enjoy a leisurely day shopping and dining.
