Flashback: Torreblanca Park / Carme Pinos

It is a marginal lot, leftover from the uncontrolled growth of Torrevieja. The strong contour change in both sides of the lot makes the construction very complicated.

Site Plan

The project consists in replanting with pine trees the slopes, turning them into a forest where small paths go down to the lower level. It is at this level where the paths entwine aromatic planting beds, always in circles.

Sometimes these circles get volume, metal trellis work that supports vines. We wanted our garden to be a concentration of perfumes in which we are submerged as we descend.

    I’m sorry, but some of the phrases have no sense whatsoever. Unfortunately this is the only information i could find in many sites about this lovely project.
