The Olive Garden



Jardin en Lo Curro

Location Santiago de Chile, Chile

Year 2014-2015

Description The properties is a splendid estate on the hill of the Manquehue, where the endemic vegetation still presents itself as wild and uncontaminated. The project seizes this occasion to bring elements of this nature in the home’s garden, alternating them with free spaces in the form of meadow or large “game fields”. The heart of the garden is, however, in the furthest part from the house, towards the street, where the composition of long-stemmed trees, bushes and grasses create a mysterious environment where a network of geometrical patterns enable its discovery and contemplation.
