Joao Morgado shared with us one of his architectural photography. Designed by Topiaris, Landscape Architecture + Gonçalo Salazar de Sousa, Architects, the landscape project is located in Comporta, Portugal.
The key concept is to regenerate the terrain – severely damaged by the construction works of the house, following a specific design – inspired on the natural patterns of the surrounding landscape.
The plantation of native species was carried out through clusters with small elevations, which are expected to gradually expand to lower adjacent areas fostering an evolutionary dynamics.
This ecological evolution has a positive impact in terms of landscape aesthetics, translated into changeable and transitory scenarios, which at some point will merge with the surrounding woodland.
