Stunning hand crafted sink

Our client was so happy with this beautiful bespoke hand crafted sink. Although stunning, solid marble is not the easiest material to work with. It’s weight, size and methodology needed to hang it in a floating state is really challenging.

Luckily at monaco projects we work with some of the best quarries, artisans and professionals to guarantee a beautiful finish every time.

Lighting Design by Monaco Projects

Here are our hot tips for successful staircase lighting

 

LOW LEVEL

Use low level lights to illuminate stairs. Consider using one fitting to highlight every, or every other, step for a stunning result.

UPLIGHTS

Recess uplights into your staircase to create a dramatic effect with a functional use.

PENDANTS

Suspending multiple pendants down stairwells at different heights is a great way of creating a real statement that goes beyond simply providing a means of lighting.

LED TAPE & EXTRUSIONS

Create a contemporary look to your stairs using LED tape and extrusions.  Under light, up light or side light stairs and turn them into a real feature.

Monaco Projects creates successful lighting – first time

Monaco Projects can help ensure that the lighting design element of your project, often the most difficult to perfect, is successfully implemented at the first attempt.

Our design team uses specialist software to create a 3D model of your apartment, villa or office. This model calculates the correct positioning of the lighting required and can incorporate floor lights, table lamps, wall lights, spot lights in the ceiling or LED panels.

Lighting design Monaco

Office 3D Modelling by Monaco Projects

The 3D modelling takes account of the amount of natural light entering the room, the height of the ceiling and even the colour of the walls and flooring – dark carpet for example absorbs a considerable amount of light requiring brighter bulbs.

This modelling makes sure that an accurate number of lights, with the appropriate levels of brightness, are used in the correct places, thereby avoiding underlit areas.

Lighting design Monaco

Monaco Projects Lighting design floor plan

As you can see from the photos different levels of light are represented by different colours. Brightly lit areas are off-white/green and the darkest areas are shown in red.

All these factors are combined to ensure that the guesswork is removed and that the brighter task lights and the dimmer ambiance lights fulfil your expectations.

Interior Design by Monaco Projects – Space-enhancing design ideas 1

Concealed Storage 

Space in Monaco, as in many cities, is at a premium. In order to maximise your space and to enrich your living experience, you need to make every square centimetre count. How do you do this? By making every part of your apartment multi-functional.

In this first article of a series focusing on clever, cool space-enhancing ideas, we are looking at concealed storage.

Concealed floor storage

 Before:

Interior Designer Monaco, Lighting Designer Monaco, Real Estate Monaco,

The floor is used simply as a place for the furniture to rest on. Much of the room height is wasted.

Interior Designer Monaco, Lighting Designer Monaco, Real Estate Monaco,

By creating a 35cm high platform, accessed by two steps along the window side of the room to maintain a safe window-ledge height, you make use of the space gained by insetting panels into the floor that hinge up allowing access to large storage units beneath.

In addition, drawers can be built into the front edge of the platform creating even more valuable storage space.

Note the insertion of the mirror behind the sofa, a useful design idea to give an extra feeling of space.

The final benefit is that the platform adds a strong architectural element to the room enhancing its aesthetics – beauty and functionality!

 

Concealed wall storage

When closed, the wall panels show a clean, uncluttered space.

Sliding back the panels reveals a library, created taking only 20cm of depth from the room.

Thirty Nine Monte Carlo Spin Room

Monaco Projects has installed the latest technology to ensure that spin classes at the Thirty Nine Monte Carlo members’ club are exhilarating, fun and competitive.

Sophisticated electronic systems synchronise the colours and the flashing of the LED lights to the music in the fully-soundproofed room.

The enormous screen shows either constantly changing dynamic patterns or the heart outputs and revolutions per minute of all the riders – perfect for encouraging competition and that extra bit of performance!

For those wanting to take spinning to the next level, the hi-tech room can also change in altitude. Failsafe systems adjust the levels of nitrogen in the air to simulate exercising at altitudes of up to 5,000m – that is about the level of the Everest base camp.

This altitude training enables riders’ bodies to perform more efficiently with less oxygen. When they “return” to sea level, performance is significantly enhanced in the oxygen-rich air.

The spin room is one of two altitude rooms installed by Monaco Projects at Thirty Nine Monte Carlo. Members can be instructed in the large training room at up to 5,000m in altitude on weights, bikes, rowing and running machines.

Interior Design Kitchen trends 2017

In this article we are looking at interior design kitchen trends 2017. If you are looking at renovating your kitchen check out black which is the er, new black:

Black stainless steel “white” goods

Interior Design, Interior design Monaco, renovations monaco, Interior design kitchen trends 2017, home renovation, Thirty Nine Monte Carlo, Renovation Companies Monaco, Builders Monaco, Construction Monaco

LG Black fridge, cooker and dishwasher

Polished stainless is out, being replaced by the sophisticated, clinical look of brushed black stainless steel. LG and Samsung both produce a range of fridge/freezers, cookers and dishwashers.

A word of warning, black stainless steel is not scratch resistant so, while it will look good now, it may not look as good in a couple of years.

Kitchens

The use of wood in kitchens is becoming less popular and the use of dark-coloured units is being used more in kitchen designs. If you decide to go for the black stainless steel appliances, you may be interested in a full-on black kitchen, something that was, until recently, unthinkable!
