Shelter in the Park

To enhance the two chateaux in the park, a landscape project creates long woody perspectives highlighting the two chateaux and enhancing the views of the river below.

Each covered yard has a distinct entrance, allowing for very different uses to be clearly identified. When under cover, the openings carefully frame views onto the surrounding park and the majestic trees.
