Landscape design can turn a typical courtyard in Milan in a soothing private oasis. The courtyard renovation in Milan, Vigentino district, features an outdoor Jacuzzi surrounded by bamboo and star jasmine. A tailored, raised deck integrates both the volume of the above-ground hot tub and the planters. Evergreen climbers grow on custom-made grid panels installed on limit walls. The space is managed balancing privacy with the possibility to have a possible parking space. The new courtyard layout is inspired by the waving, well-raked gravel of Japanese gardens. The range of materials is minimalist and in line with the post-industrial style of the building: metal for structures and planters, wood for decks and furnishing, natural stone for the floors. Modern simplicity is achieved by refined details such as the vase with a cut to accommodate the beautiful existing Salix matsudana or the fluid laying of the paving tiles.
