Puygarreau Garden

City of Poitiers

2013

|
 

At first sight, the city of Poitiers seems mineral and the typology of the green spaces is rather private. Unsuspected since the publics spaces, the privates courtyards contain rich gardens and a large tree heritage. To show one of them and to open it to the public space, we demolished three houses in Puygarreau Street. This demolition allows accessibility and development of a garden in the heart in the city center. The trees have been preserved and the garden is opened on the street.
