Project for a very long and narrow plot of urban land with height differences of 7m. Area divided into 3 levels. The lowest front garden combine the requirements of the conservator and the modern garden. Whole of the second level of the garden was built on the roof of the underground buildings. We used the very latest technology to irrigate and drain area. Lawns minimized to small one with 1-hole golf course and lawn for children in the shade of the trees, which do not require watering.
The inspiration of the project was itself historic, 160 year old villa and the requirements of the conservator. On the other hand, the owners passion for elegance, modern style and technology. In addition, a large impact on the project was undoubtedly the environment. On the one hand busy street of the city on the other, a beautiful old beech forest.
