Garden Design Mirasole Abbey
Abbazia di Mirasole | Opera, Milan _ Italy
The Abbey of Mirasole is a very special and exclusive place located near Milan. It was born between the XII century and the first years of the XIII century by the Humiliati, with a community of lay people only, and it has inside some valuable and particularly important architectural elements that influence in an important way any architectural intervention such as, for example, the perimeter walls of different formations, the ancient church of 1300 A.D. with its bell tower, the different arcades inside, the tower at the main entrance of the Abbey and the big central agricultural court.
The green project is oriented to redevelop the internal agricultural court, the internal cloister placed next to the Church and, finally, the external part of the walls.
As for the main part of the project, that is the Agricultural Court, we have tried to assign an architectural order in line with the use and typology of the place and its history. Also all the essences and plants have been carefully chosen according to the place, its history and the typology of the plants existing in that territory.
