The Ruins

Special Mention of the Landezine International Landscape Award LILA 202 and Editor’s Choice. The two-hectare project combines a conservation area of existing forrest with a hydrological management design to have a lake that harvests rainwater and functions as a cistern for the house and garden.

Around the house, a series of paths, terraces and stone walls guide the visitors. Their design came from the inspiration of the stones on ruins, giving the impression that they have always been there a nd have been overgrown by vegetation
