a private park in a rural landscape
Castelfranco Veneto - Italy - 1999
The project concerns the proposal for a park physically bound to three private gardens. The need was to create a space that can meet the diverse needs of their owners. The solution is based on lines and ellipses. The lines in the rural landscape, the directions of the fields are revisited by hedges and rows of fruit trees. Other elements are the hills in the shape of ellipses, slightly raised from the ground, covered with trees of great growth, contrasting with the light of the lawn. All species are deciduous trees to give a feeling of life, of changes in the park. Each ellipse has a single species to enhance the effect of overly large tree, a large volume that gives a dramatic effect in an empty space. A formal hedge gives a more rigorous border and entrance to the private gardens.
