The renovation of Monaco's Larvotto seaside complex is celebrated on a single stamp.
In 2021, the Larvotto seaside complex in Monaco has been completely reinvented.
For this large-scale project, the Prince's Government called on Renzo Piano, the famous Genoese architect, co-author of the Pompidou Center in Paris, and landscape architect Michel Desvigne.
The result of two years of work: a completely remodeled and modernized coastline, a beach and its surroundings that have become even more attractive and pleasant to live in, housing public spaces, quality restaurants and shops, accessible and lively.
In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, an ocean thermal energy loop has been developed to supply heating and air conditioning to the entire district, including the shops of the Larvotto complex.
