Location: Madrid (Spain)
Project of and execution by Nóbilis Arquitectura del Paisaje. This garden was planned with a ‘exceptional protagonist’, namely a model specimen of holm oak which becomes a sculpture itself. Thus a small retaining wall of exposed concrete was designed, acting as a bench. The intention was to insulate the grassed area from the rest of the garden to try to keep out excessive damp. The garden perimeter looks to create a natural copse with different trees and bushes. The entrance to the property is framed with two potent white escallonia hedges that accentuate the clean lines of the building.
