Gardens of the old cemetery

Bolvir, Catalunya. 2014


The desire to tie two distinct levels, from the church square to the lower scales is the premise that make appears the project of the old cemetery gardens.

The creation of a parking area in the ancient village allows marking the lower limit for the space landscaping. Gardens that guard a zigzag ramp that saves level to level to reach the Romanesque door of the church. The turning points of this linear path allow the creation of small lookout spaces. The garden is not understood only as a circulation space, also as a rest area where you can enjoy views of the Pyrenees Mountains surrounded by native vegetation of their own mountains.
