In April 2005 we published a post about a series of gardens that studiometrico has designed in the North East of Italy for a private client. The project is dealing with the organisation of the outdoor spaces surrounding a rural house from the 15th century that has been renovated by vudafieri-partners, a Milan based architectural firm with a long time collaboration with studiometrico. The gardens are going to be completed in Spring 2008 and will feature a number of art installations that are part of the private collection of the owner. Since we have been as busy as silent with this project, we post here some recent pictures of the site works.
Around the house there will be few hortus for vegetables enclosed by low fences in rusted metal network.

Joep Verhoeven from Demakersvan has spent a long time in India to manage the construction of a beautiful ‘Lace Fence Pergola’ that he has specially designed for our gardens. The Pergola has been already shipped to Italy and should be installed on site before the end of the year!Tags: Apple trees
