Ideally located on the Port Hercule, in the heart of La Condamine shopping district, just a few steps away from the train station, the Winch is a surprisingly spacious, contemporary building, which overlooks the starting line of the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix. A product of the imagination of architects Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Alexis Blanchi, its angular design plays with the Principality’s high urban planning constraints, blending in harmoniously with the surrounding buildings. It therefore gives views from three very distinct façades, the first facing the harbour, the second facing the Rock and the Prince’s Palace, and the third facing the mountain. Aluminium balconies decorate the east façade, on the seafront
Arranged over 9 levels, Le Winch has a large office area for lease over two levels on the mezzanine level and 1st floor as well as 4 apartments each with 4 beautifully appointed rooms. Arranged so that there is one apartment, they rise up from the 2nd to 5th floors. A sumptuous 5-room penthouse duplex apartment occupies the 6th and 7th floors. All the properties have an original layout due to the building’s arrangement in corner. The office space has natural separations between work and meeting areas and work and management areas.
The apartments also enjoy a layout, whereby the east-facing living areas, overlooking the sea, are perfectly separated from the sleeping areas nestled in the calm of the south façade providing magnificent views of the setting sun. Beautiful natural materials such as wood or stoneware in warm, natural colors clad impeccably fitted out interiors, thus providing tenants with all the qualities of a modern building together with a soft, refined and comfortable environment. The building’s heating and cooling system comprises a heat pump connected to the Condamine district’s seawater closed loop system. ‘Le Winch’ is the first building to be connected to this still unrivalled system that is 100% renewable.
