Monaco’s Villa Lamartine project earns eco status

Home to Monaco’s new community centre, the Villa Lamartine has been given a silver award from the Bâtiments Durables Méditerranéens de Monaco initiative for its commitment to sustainable and ecological practices during the build phase of the overall renovation project.  

The Bâtiments Durables Méditerranéens de Monaco (BD2M) initiative was launched in October 2018 by the Monegasque government in conjunction with environmental organisation EnvirobatBDM.  

It was designed as a “bespoke sustainable construction initiative, based on sharing skills and experience and an interdisciplinary, cross-cutting approach” that rewards property developments and those behind them for the integration of sustainability and eco principles into the overall design and construction phases of a project. The BD2M scheme also offers a third level of certification for the “end use” of a project.  

Following a silver level award for the design phase of the project back in 2021, the Villa Lamartine has now been rewarded for its efforts during the construction phase with a second second silver award under the BD2M scheme.  


Being granted silver for the first two phases has earned the developers commissioned by the Mairie de Monaco kudos from the Monegasque government’s Mission for Energy Transition (MTE), which has since touted the “the environmental and energy advantages of this exemplary renovation”. 

The building was designed using a bioclimatic and sustainable development approach, which will help reduce energy consumption, improve internal air quality, acoustics and thermal comfort, and optimise water management, among other significant advantages. 

The Villa Lamartine is the first municipal building in Monaco to obtain a BD2M silver level certification.
