A description of how my firm handles projects
The design process starts with consolidating a preliminary design concept, then continues by suggesting design alternatives and simulations, up to a detailed design which includes accurate drawings for execution and the preparation of bills of quantities for issuing tenders. The design includes various elements according to the client’s taste, the facts on the ground and budgetary constraints:
- developing the area and situating buildings on the plot
- creating lakes and ornamental pools
- swimming pools both biological and conventional
- green walls
- parking areas
- musical fountains
- outdoor kitchens
- paved areas
- games and sports installations
- designs for lighting
- and anything else you could possibly imagine…
The design process is through a full dialog with the client in order to comply, optimally, with his requirements. After submitting the drawings, the project moves on to detailed accompaniment with full supervision on site to ensure the correct and professional implementation of the design. It is important to emphasize that to achieve the best possible design, the way in which of the garden will develop over the long term must be anticipated, to avoid future problems and damage.
My Mission Statement
My love of Nature, with its diversity and fascinating scenery, is what led me to create using Nature’s own materials. Planning a garden, which is both a place of relaxation in leisure time as well as a functional space, demands in-depth comprehensive and creative thinking. For me, design is an art form combining all elements – aesthetic and practical – to respond to the unique needs of those using the garden. The planning process exploits the knowledge and experience I have accumulated over many years of project execution. I believe that designing a landscape or a garden is like drawing a picture that combines colors, light and smells that work in harmony together to create a pleasurable experience. Based on my experience, I believe dreams can turn into reality. It all depends on how much you desire it.
