Its probably for more modern quarters.

Running lines for electricity, phones, and internet through 600-year-old palace walls is not ideal. The larger area will allow for current technology more easily as well as potential new tech.

Of course a new nursery wouldn't hurt either. KIDDING!

I hope it will architecturally blend with the older sections of the palace and not look like it was just stuck on there. That would ruin the whole image. By creating new office space will free up the older original part of the Palace for tours. Maybe Rainier's office will become part of the palace tour who knows.
It is much easier for technology to start with a new building.

Hibou, according to this link, there will be no outward changes to the appearance of the palace. I am glad because something modern would look awful.

Suonymona,

A new nursery was more in my line of thinking too!

Thanks Libra I'm glad too because it would destroy the interity of the original architecture. I remember when Prince Charles caused an uproar when he critized a drawing of the then new wing of the National Gallery in London eventually he won and a new architect was hired- Robert Venturi who blended the architectural styles of the two buildings together beautifully while still giving the new wing a modern look. It was quite successful. So it can be done well if someone hires the right person for the job. I still want to see what it looks like when they are finished. Hopefully it will be fine.

I wouldn't want the Palace to look like the Louvre. I really do not like that glass pyramid they put up there. It just doesn't belong. I don't think Albert would allow that to happen to his home. JMO

For those who are concerned about the new extension's architecture, read the following:

"It will allow new offices and meeting rooms to be set up in an adjoining 16th century building closed off when Monaco was under Spanish protection from 1524 to 1641."

It will be a remodeling of an existing building.

Thanks for the info glad to hear it is an existing building! They can call it the Palace annex like the White House.

Mwhite3182, thank you for your finding. So there won't be modern building,just the 16th century structure modernized. So we can be sure the palace architecture style would preserved.

It seems like just yesterday that we were wishing you happy birthday for last year. Well, like thousands of others, I do hope you have a wonderful year to come. It must be very difficult to be in your shoes. We admire you greatly for your strength, devotion, and compassion to walk in them as well as you do. Happy Birthday.
