the night arrives, a small garden outside the house becomes
an enigmatic space full of colours, and thanks to these light
effects this peaceful Japanese garden becomes a theatre...
The lighting and the watering systems are the most common
technological systems used in the garden. We have to insert
these two elements because to the lifestyle of these years.
The Customer wanted a garden without maintenance problems
and that can be enjoyed during the night. The Buyer wanted
that the garden was interesting in the night as well as during
Somewhere the lighting simply consists in some floodlight
to light distinctive plants and ornament or to light the crossing.
Often a submerged light is used to emphasize a fountain but,
in this project, the lighting was an essential element during
the design and it isn't added at the end of work.
We tried to consider the space like a theatre in which the
light effects change the appearance and the atmosphere creating
an air of mystery. An inusual bright light (red led) in the
area of tsukubai draws the visitor's attention.
The light draws the corners of the stone path and somewhere
the light is vertical like bamboo and somewhere is hidden
behind the trees and the stones. At the end there is a "gateway
of light", the residence.
