Las líneas limpias de la villa y el encuadre arquitectónico son el telón de fondo sobre el cual el jardín juega su papel para hacer que el hogar cobre vida.

The project consists of an outdoor garden and small capsules or interior patios.

THE LANDSCAPE AS SCENOGRAPHY
The landscape as scenery is a classic concept to conceptualize and spatially organize the exterior garden. The successive planes can multiply the field of vision creating a depth of field and orchestrating the experience of a landscape.

The clean lines of the villa and the architectural framing are the backdrop against which the garden plays its role in making the home alive.

THE WINDOW AS A FRAME.
The sliding screens of the villa frame specific views of the garden, becoming a composition, an image that draws attention and maintains the view.

The garden displays successive framing devices. As if a story of each garden was "framed", the result is a sequence of living stories within the overall structure of the architectural framework.

For the external environment, species fully adapted to the climate of Kuwait with minimal water needs will be used.

THE ENCAPSULATED LANDSCAPE
The interior spaces are enriched with delimited spaces and strongly planted. Thanks to the microclimate that will be created in these patios, the vegetation will differ from the exterior. For these interior gardens, tropical vegetation will be used to show green and exuberant spaces that contrast with the exterior garden image and transmit freshness.
