Garden design: create an oasis of greenery in outdoor spaces
Garden design: in reconfiguring the external spaces of a house, a very tempting opportunity can be the creation of a fully equipped structure with glass surfaces, which can be used as an area in which to dedicate oneself to the passion of gardening in a broad sense, in a broad vision of living and enjoying the dehors of the house.
In some situations, where obviously the external space allows it, you can think of the design of a private garden, which can be used for various purposes: how nursery for sowing and planting, such as greenhouse for the cultivation of the most varied plant species, such as recovery space in which to plant some plants, so as to protect them from the strong temperature ranges or from the harsh winter climates.
However, even in a modest-sized garden, it will still be possible to create one glazed structure well insulated but ventilated, a sort of winter Garden, where you can arrange some ornamental or small plants fruit trees.
Inside a garden space multifunctional, well protected by a cover and walls in tempered glass, it will also be possible to set up a relaxation corner, as well as a work station, with a table on which to place the seedlings for transfer operations, cuttings, grafts and so on.
A garden space in the outdoor of a villa: project plan
The following plan representation represents a portion of the external space of one chalet single-family built on one level.
A large private garden surrounds the entire perimeter of the residence, with large grassy areas, areas with tall trees and an area used as a vegetable garden: a part of thevegetable garden is mentioned on the top right of the illustration.
A pedestrian walkway paved in anti-freeze and non-slip stoneware for exteriors, it leads to a terraced area in front of the house and also developed laterally, to allow for secondary access, to be imagined on the left side of the plan representation.
The clients had expressed the need to create an additional external space, suitably protected by windows, where you can put al shelter plants during the colder season, in addition to the possibility of growing herbs aromatic and other small plant species particularly sensitive to winter frosts or bad weather.
It was therefore thought to create a small private garden, with the main function of winter Garden in which to house the plants to protect them from the cold but also to be used as nursery laboratory and as a relaxation point, enjoyable all year round, in this sheltered structure, in the middle of the outdoors.

Glazed structure of the garden for private use: project drawing
In the following drawing in perspective, I illustrate the three-dimensionality of this structure used as a private garden, which looks like a bright polyhedron composed of many faces windows supported and enclosed by a sturdy frame aluminum.
The apical part of the roof has a sheet in copper corrugated, particularly resistant to atmospheric agents, while the upper windows take on trapezoidal conformations to make up the inclination of the roof to measure.
The garden structure is accessed through asliding door on double upper and lower rails, thus optimizing every space.
The frame in gunmetal – colored aluminum, has one wainscot basal that gives staticity to the entire structure: on the internal part of the metal plinth can be provided the channels for the irrigation, electrical and any internal air conditioning.
The doors in tempered glass are openable to flap, both those of the roof as well as the transom lights and the high side windows, so as to allow optimal aeration natural, avoiding harmful phenomena of overheating inside during the sunniest periods and avoiding unpleasant formations of mold caused by possible excessive humidity of the internal atmosphere.
