Garden in the Andean Pre cordillera

GARDEN IN THE ANDEAN PRECORDILLERA-chile-paula aguiree8
Located in the Andean pre cordillera next to Santiago, the capital of Chile, the place has amazing views over the valley. However, the steepness of the slope, between 30% to 40%, makes it a difficult place to build plant and inhabit. The house has three floors and leaves 1040 square meters available for the garden. The site has no vegetation except for two big native shrubs.

Habitat Landscape Architects creates educational parks in Northern Cape, South Africa

Strydenburg-park---North-West-view
The client brief called for three principal focuses: the creation of employment opportunities, capacity building or skills development, and maximising the socio and economic impact of the project at the local level. Budgetary and resource limitations coupled with intense local politics resulted in a very challenging environment for design and implementation decisions.

In an effort to maximise the impact of the project on the local community and to really understand the context in terms of local needs, social issues and available skills resulted in an extensive and protracted consultation process. Amongst others this process included a “Dream parks” competition for school children that resulted in significant insight into their social problems and needs as well as their perceptions of the environment.
