Gardening is an activity that ensures health and enriches your soul. 

“The Enchanted Garden” is one of those landscape projects.

“Gardens were a soul’s at ease;

Where everything that meets the eye,

Flowers and grass and cloudless sky,

Resemble forms that are or seem,

When sleepers wake 

And yet still dream.” W.B. Yeats.

As this poet says, the garden has its place in the soul. Thus was born this garden, called: “The Enchanted Garden,” from the imagination, from the desire to create, from the passion for nature.

“The Enchanted Garden” was designed in a way that offers a person a view, as well as a complete garden, in all seasons.

This garden is subdivided into the following categories, and contains spaces for: vegetables, fruits, aromatic herbs, succulents, and flowers. This garden presents four additional characteristics: the essence of the spirit, the essence of life, the essence of the senses, and aesthetic essence.

The presence of flowers, the whisper of the wind, the morning dew, the butterflies, the fresh smell of the grass, the hum of the bees, the song of crickets in the evenings, all create a spirit of relaxation, which is unmistakably transmitted by nature.

  • The essence of the spirit is found in the area with flowers.
  • The essence of life can be found in the garden area with vegetables.
  • The essence of the senses is found in the area with aromatic plants.
  • The aesthetic essence is found in the area with grass plants.

With this project, we introduced some practical suggestions regarding the vegetation used.

This garden was designed to include a terrace with loungers (that can be used for reading, the beach, and relaxation), lighting systems, a rainwater catchment system, as well as intelligent irrigation systems equipped with weather sensors.

The proposed plant and tree species introduce biodiversity to the garden.

The story of “Izvorul Rece” Square – project implemented in sector 2, Bucharest

Brief History:

 Ever since the rise of Bucharest, the area where “Izvorul Rece” Square is located has held significant meaning for the city, even if it was initially a marginal area. More than two centuries ago, the area was filled with rest homes for domestic traders, as well as those from abroad. In the evening, after business was concluded for the day, people would hang out until dawn. Such an atmosphere generally attracted many artists. Thus, by the beginning of the 20th century, the Izvor Square area had become one of the favorite places of the important writers, painters, and architects of the city.

Proposal Scuar Izvorul Rece- Anthropic renaturation

The Izvorul Rece Square, according to this project, will become an oasis for relaxation in the middle of the city’s bustle. With the capitalization of this square, an anthropic renaturation was created through nature. The proposed solution will have a strong impact on drivers, pedestrians, and visitors alike.

The following species of perennial and decorative plants have been proposed: Perovskia atripicifolia, Ceanothus thyrsiflorus, Echinacea purpurea, Liatris spicata, and Pennisetum alopecuroides.

Izvorul Rece Square will become a point of attraction not only for tourists, but also for the inhabitants of the city, who will enjoy a pleasant atmosphere, right in the middle of the city bustle.

This corner of heaven will bring freshness, relaxation, and color to the hearts of the inhabitants.


Povestea Scuarului Izvorul Rece proiect imlementat in cadrul sectorului 2, Bucuresti

Scurt Isoric:

Inca de la facerile Bucurestiului, zona pe care acum este situat Scuarul Izvor a insemnat mult pentru oras, chiar daca initial era o zona marginasa. Acum mai bine de 2 secole, zona era plina de case de odihna pentru comerciantii care veneau cu marfuri din tara si de peste hotare.  Dupa ce se incheiau targuielile si se lasa seara, lumea se punea pe petrecut pana in zori. O astfel de atmosfera atragea in general multi artisti. Astfel, la inceputul secolului XX, zona scuarului Izvor, devenise unul din locurile preferate de scriitori, pictori si arhitecti de seama ai orasului.

 Propunere Scuar Izvorul Rece- Renaturare antropica

Scuarul Izvorul Rece, conform acestui proiect, va deveni o oaza de relaxare in mijlocul agitatiei orasului.  Odata cu valorificarea acestui scuar, s-a creat o renaturare antropica prin intermediul naturii. Solutia propusa va crea un impact puternic atat asupra conducatorilor auto cat si asupra pietonilor si vizitatorilor. 

Au fost propuse urmatoarele specii de plante perene si decorative: Perovskia atripicifolia, Ceanothus thyrsiflorus, Echinacea purpurea, Liatris spicata, Pennisetum alopecuroides.

Scuarul Izvorul Rece va deveni un punct de atractie pentru turisti dar si pentru locuitorii orasului, care se vor bucura de o atmosfera placuta, chiar in mijlocul agitatiei orasului. 

Acest coltisor de rai a adus prospetime, relaxare si culoare in inima locuitorilor.
