Name of project: Rencoret Park
Garden surface: 2 ha
Construction year: 1993
Location: Lo Barnechea, Región Metropolitana, Chile
Architect of house: José Domingo Peñafiel
The design for this garden was based around the architecture of the house, which is built in a classic European style. Flowerbeds are enclosed by hedges while a large rose arbour –a structural element– integrates mature lime trees that were already present. Several imposing trees (not necessarily indigenous) such as holm oaks, walnuts and magnolia were added to complete the plan.
