A building lighting charter for the Principality

A building lighting charter for the Principality

Lighting up a city provides an opportunity to reveal its less familiar features. Given the specific, often spectacular nature of the urban landscape in Monaco, which has around 7,500 light points, this challenge is particularly important.

The development of a building lighting charter for the Principality was guided by four key issues: the desire to limit energy consumption, the conservation of flora and fauna, the protection of the night sky, and the creation of a harmonious night skyline.

The assessment sets out two major categories of building which can be lit up (each category is then divided into sub-categories, established according to certain criteria):

The Building Lighting Charter has been made available and can be consulted at the Department of Forward Studies, Urban Planning and Mobility (23 Avenue Albert II). This tool presents the general requirements with regard to luminance, colours, beams of light, maximum energy consumption and hours of operation, as well as additional requirements for specific categories of building.
