Transformed into a salt meadow the garden tells a story of the historic proximity of the place to the ocean. The planting consist primarily of different types of grass such as meadow grass, Festuca glauca, Seslevia and Molina caerulea and provides colour all year round. Colours that change from blue and green in the summer to golden tones in the winter – a space of nuances. The different and changing spaces are held together by paths crossing through the garden, whilst the delineation of the spaces is achieved by means of change of material. A textural and sensory space with a particular attention to nuances and movement.
