Garden in the Algarve

A lush oasis in the warm south of Portugal
Garden in the Algarve

The contrast in the surrounding landscapes is the inspiration for this coastal garden in the Algarve. The levelled irrigated agricultural fields beautifully contrast with the rough, dry hills with forests and domestic plant species. In the garden the clean and crisp lines of lawn and white framework contrast with the surrounded sloping zone with trees and local plant species resistant to the dry climate.


The spare rainwater of roof and terrace is collected in a basin to irrigate the garden. Two patios in the building are subtropical paradises where water is an important theme as well. The patio next to the bathroom is at the same time the outdoor shower. That way you’ll shower the plants in this garden at the same time you take a shower yourself!
