Garden Villa C – A landscape design in Umbria
The project of landscape and garden design for a private Villa in Umbria deals with the theme of landscape architecture. The villa is in a context of strong landscape value facing the city of Todi in the beautiful countryside of Umbria and it was recently renovated. After all the owner understood that the building and its garden could not dialogue with the surrounding area.
The garden design of the villa
Therefore we made a design that manages to give an identity to the anonymous hill on which the house stands. An operation of excavations and modelations of the ground with the insertion of stone and wood elements that follow the existing traces. They become little terraces and each of them has small defined areas: solarium, jacuzzi, relax. This landscape and garden design project intends also to be at low budget, thanks to minimal interventions and simple materials.
At the lower level, in an excavation on the ground, we placed a parking space for the cars. In this way the owner and its guests can come directly here from the street. The upper terrace continues over it becoming a wooden pergola which define its roof. This element give aesthetic continuity to the entire design of the garden and, above all, allows protection from the sun.
In addition, the small circular walls embrace the land and become extensions of the villa in the landscape. In precise points they become stairs that allow the owners to reach the estate’s vineyard to the east side of the villa.
