From our careful analysis of the context, three key principles emerged that needed to be respected in the design of the green space: to frame and respect the wonderful surrounding view, to harmonize the house with the garden, and to make sure that the main protagonist of the scene was the swimming pool, conceived as an infinity pool stretching out onto the lake.
We drew up a Project Plan in the finest detail, highlighting the necessary qualities of the project in every element, from planting to the swimming pool, irrigation and lighting systems, the creation of retaining walls and architectural elements, and garden and pool pavings. The Project Plan also detailed the internal distribution of the space, with functional areas, the positioning of the irrigation and lighting systems, and the legend of plants and materials used.
Our internal design studio created a preview of the final project with a photorealistic rendering, an extremely faithful computer representation of the three-dimensional environment. In this way, the client could easily visualize the finished project, even before the work had started.
We created a green space in which the view was framed with a planting bed closed in between boxwood and centred by a specimen of Washingtonia, robusta, the native palm of north-west Mexico whose name pays homage to the first president of the United States. The garden kept the straight lines of the house, with the whole perimeter surrounded by a double, graduated boxwood hedge. The entrance planting bed, with a Calabrian olive at its centre, was also squared, in a harmonious contrast with the roundness of the boxwood.
Quando si attraversa questo nuovo spazio verde ci si sente trasportati in un altra realtà dove la fantasia la fa da padrone circondati da altofusto e fioriture colorate. L’occhio sognatore e longimirante dell’ amante del verde riesce anche ad immaginarsi il futuro sviluppo delle piante vedendo apparire piccoli passaggi tra i boschi e il nascere di ambientazioni uniche.
