A unique project, built between the sea and the cliff, on the French-Monegasque border, involving excavation work 25 metres below the original ground level.

A flagship element of this project is the architecture of the Propylée, a highly technical and complex structure built in UHPFC (ultra-high performance fibre-reinforced concrete) with its prefabricated monolithic columns 12 metres high, to create a green public park of over 1,000 m2 that spreads in front of the terraces of L’Exotique and under which vehicles entering and leaving Monaco travel.


Designed by Rudy Ricciotti, the principal architect of the MUCEM museum in Marseille, and Monegasque architect Fabrice Notari, this building, which has shaped the western entrance to Monaco, was designed with the aim of maximising light, with bright and airy interiors. What's more, L'Exotique’s flats boast spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea stretching to the horizon, as well as the Rock of Monaco. L'Exotique’s flats also boast magnificent terraces surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation.

A strategic position

The Jardin Exotique, in the highest position of all Monaco's districts, offers residents incredible views over the rest of Monaco and the Mediterranean Sea. It takes its name from its botanical garden, where you can admire an impressive variety of cacti and succulents. This residential area is home to the Princesse Antoinette park, where residents go to play a variety of sports, and children enjoy the mini-zoo and playground. The renowned Princess Grace Hospital is also in the same district.

Top-of-the-range flats 

We have created top-of-the-range flats with high-quality materials and meticulous finishes. The modern, elegant interiors have been designed to offer optimum comfort and a unique living experience. Large picture windows and generous terraces allow residents to take full advantage of the exceptional sea views.

Modern, environmentally-friendly architecture

In keeping with our commitment to sustainable development and environmental responsibility, our client, Fine Properties Monte-Carlo (FPMC), has designed L'Exotique with bold, modern architecture incorporating eco-responsible technologies. This minimises the environmental impact of the residence and reduces the energy consumption of the flats.
