Valley of cosiness

Best Project of Public Space by a Student

About the project
The project targeted beautification of a recreation zone between two large residential areas and two sports areas. The concept took into account the needs of the residents of the area, who wanted the landscape preserved to the maximum. A large swamp in the center of the site used to disrupt the pedestrian traffic between the residential areas and the sports ones. This problem was solved by building a wooden bridge.

The landscape was preserved, and the swamp was converted into a pond with wooden boardwalks on stilts, which wind up the hills covered with wild grasses.
