Villa Unda Maris - Montecarlo - Principality of Monaco
Architectural solution: Reserved
Location: Rue Saint Martin, 2 - Montecarlo - Principality of Monaco
Description: Prestigious private residence a few tens of meters from the Palazzo dei Principi (sometimes referred to as Palazzo Ranieri).
Considered by some to be one of the most prestigious private residences in the whole of Montecarlo, it is spread over an area of about 2250 square meters totally facing the sea.
The villa borders the headquarters of the National Council of the Principality of Monaco and is spread over seven floors, 2 of which are underground.
There is also a four-storey annexe with a large garden.
Princess Stephanie of Monaco and Caroline are both resident on rue Saint Martin.
For our company, one of the most difficult challenges was represented by having to combine the needs of the customer with the needs of construction, the quarry and the laboratory; and those of architects and engineers.
This challenge was completed thanks to a continuous and constant dialogue with all the parties involved in the project, and thanks to the courage of people who gave their best for the success of the work.
Another challenge was the construction of monolithic columns with a height of over 490 cm. in a single piece, which had to be brought safely (given the importance of the neighboring buildings) to a considerable height in order to then be inserted inside the scaffolding.
This work was carried out thanks to a careful study starting from the cultivation of the quarry where blocks of exceptional sizes were extracted which were then worked with completely unusual techniques, given that the laboratory machines are usually built to work blocks of lengths up to a maximum of 330 cm ..
A careful study with the engineers and glue technicians allowed the creation of special ribs in 316 stainless steel which were glued and mechanically fixed to the columns, making them solid and safe (also from a seismic point of view).
The skill of transporters, builders and installers did the rest.
The peculiarity of this work is that it is visible to anyone wishing to verify the durability of our materials and the quality of our workmanship, since the work is visible from the street.
