Quai des Princes

Located along the north-east pier of Cap d'Ail harbour, close to the Principality of Monaco, the new Quai des Princes complex hosts the Club de la Mer, restaurants, cafes and a shop gallery overlooking the dock. The architectural project presents two levels and a garden terrace and it naturally arranges the pedestrian connection between the Avenue des Castelans, the quay of the port and the seafront. This links Montecarlo and Cap d'Ail, thus completing the ring of one of the main pedestrian walkways of the area. The rooftop garden hosts two relax spaces and allows the Seaside Plaza and Leonardo Apartments residents the direct connection with the port. This roof is very visible from the tall buildings that surround it and is in fact the main façade of the complex. While the front facing the port recalls the rationality and linearity of the decks of a ship, the design of the roof playfully uses the geometries of the semicircular arches used in the facades of the surrounding buildings profusely. The shapes and materials employed try to be light as a boat, solid like the pier and festive as the Cote d’Azur atmosphere.
