The double height and little more than 4 square meters patio, allows the natural light into the center of the house, near the stairs. One day, a drainage problem made the wall´s finished to fall out, so they call us to say what to do.
We started by looking at pictures of details they like: fewer plants than before, maybe a fountain. They had a virgin they would want to put there. There was a drainage register to keep, and the slopes should go there. They needed a good place for the bromeliad, easy to maintain and change. Ahh, and also, please, do not let the earth to be seen.
We made hand drawings to represent the owner’s wishes, and later formal ones for the builder. A fake column made space for a new drainage pipe, and new electricity. To avoid the material to fall again in the future, thin concrete bands where put among the ceramic tiles.
We suggested exterior materials: colored clay shavings, cutter stones and boulder.
I believe the statue is happy in her new patio!!!
