The Larvotto Beach development will include stunning contemporary architecture housing an elegant two-storey beach resort complex, including shops, cafes, and restaurants, an expanded public area with shaded areas, lush green foliage, a new kids’ playground, and a 1-kilometre cycle track. In addition, new breakwaters will provide better protection to the beach, ensuring future generations can continue to enjoy this wonderful space.

Sustainable features include an intelligent waste management system, a seawater heat exchanger, optimised water management, solar panels, and charging stations for electric bikes. Designed by award-winning architects, the new Larvotto Beach development will create one of the most exciting destinations in the Principality of Monaco. 

The architects

The Larvotto Beach district is being transformed by Renzo Piano and landscape architect Michel Desvign, among the most famous architects in Monaco.

The winner of the 1998 Pritzker Prize, Piano is the architect behind some of the world’s most iconic buildings, including The Shard in London, the Whitney Museum of Art in New York City, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Desvign is a renowned French landscape architect known for his innate understanding of how elegantly designed landscapes help to create dynamic and desirable spaces to live, work, and play. He has worked on projects spanning more than 25 countries and, in 2011, was awarded France’s Grand Prize for Urbanism, among others.

Both Piano and Desvign have also been central to the design of Monaco’s new eco-district, Mareterra Monaco, located just a moment away from the new Larvotto Beach development.

This ambitious land reclamation project, scheduled for delivery in 2025, will offer a selection of apartments, townhouses, penthouses, and a limited number of super-prime waterfront private villas. Additionally, it will include commercial space, a new marina, a public seafront promenade that will connect to the new Larvotto Beach development, and lush green outdoor space.
