The image of this space is largely determined by a very irregular topography, with slopes between 15% and 30% and a forested mood created by abundant pines, evergreens and deciduous oaks. In order to adapt the project to this singular topography, it was decided to design the recessed niches as retaining walls, which produced terraces like those once used to farm hilly land.
The terraces are grouped into twos and threes to form enclosures. The fine aggregate used for the paths and planted native species are combined with more typical garden trees (palms, planes, cedars, etc.) and shrubs that are trimmed into geometric shapes, which altogether give the place the air of an abandoned garden embedded in the landscape. In front of the walls, a stylized pergola with ivy, jasmine and wisteria serves to create a more private enclosure while at the same time contributing to an overall language for the whole.
