To create a garden in a harsh environment to be constructed in two stages, two years apart, with the appearance of a natural single entity.
Poor soils and strong winds contributed largely to the choice of plant materials and the cohesion of the final result.
Construction took place jus over a period of 2 years as briefed.
The whole site was transformed into a natural, interesting area despite the poor soil and adverse climatic conditions.
