Our multidisciplinary team enumerates different professionals who are able to answer to a all the requests by private and public Clients in terms of aesthetics, functionality and ecology.

Our vision developed from the thousands of gardens and parks which distinguish Italy’s history, reinterpreted in a contemporary and international way to meet today’s needs in terms of functionality and economic and environmental sustainability. Thanks to the thorough knowledge of the technical and aesthetic means which are necessary to design and shape a landscape, our projects have a unique personality and character.

Our overall approach to landscape design, together with an accurate preliminary analysis, allows us to understand the “spirit of the place”, helping us in finding the right inspiration to realize the project in its entirety and originality.

The structure and three-dimensionality of a place is enhanced thanks to our attention to detail and the correct selection of the focal points of the project. Moreover, our design approach is made in four dimensions, taking into account also the passing of time (days, seasons and years) together with the three dimensions of space.

Our attention to all aspects of our work, including the maintenance in the years to come, is a guarantee for the complete satisfaction of our Clients.
