Location: Mondovì (IT)
The project’s aim is to redevelop this beautiful garden placed next to the railway station. It has big potential, especially since the café inside the structure has been opened, but today it is in poor condition. The idea was to divide the space in three main areas: the first one, closer to the café, is dedicated to clients and to the activities organized; the second one and the third one, farther from the bar, are completely free and can be used by everybody. As we can see from the drawings, the three plots are planted with lots of ornamental grasses, perennial herbaceous, shrubs and trees which shape the space in a very sinuous way, softening its rigidity. The first area is again divided into four rooms: the social one, furnished with tables and chairs, where people can meet, drink something together, talk, share moments; the fragrant one, characterized by aromatic plants, where everyone can smell a lot of different flavours; the romantic one, under a Pyracantha tree, perfect for pairs; the meeting one, where events and bigger meetings are organized.
