The focus of the proposal was to incorporate the local habitat in the design, using the native species Acacia caven and different ground textures. The set finishes off al one of the model homes of the condominium, within which the outside lines are continued, adding pure and orthogonal guidelines to model the landscape.
Horizontal and vertical elements are incorporated (water mirror and bamboo), which augment the angular character of the house architecture. In the house’s garden, mosses and creeping plants were used to cover the natural and modeled slopes, unifiying the whole set with ornamental trees like Cyperus alternifolius, Acer palmatum and Lagestroemia indica.
