The garden seeks to explore and present the beauty of cultural landscapes and plant communities of the Kvarner region, in the northern part of the Croatian Adriatic coast, a landscape in which resistant plants and sun lovers mix with a type of Mediterranean forest characteristic of the area, a mix of Gariga evergreen bushes (Viburnum tinus, Laurus nobilis and Phillyrea latifolia) and thermophilic deciduous trees (such as Ostrya carpinifolia, Fraxinus ornus and Acer monspessulanum). The visitor can walk along the rocky path between the dry walls. Then the path widens, making room for colored plantations of perennials and small spherical bushes typical of the local flora (Euphorbia, Salvia, Iris and Centranthus): a sunny clearing that opens into a shady forest with an explosion of colours and scents. At the center of the glade, a fence created by the semicircular drywall that serves as a living room, in which to rest and enjoy the surrounding environment. The design is simple and uses cultural elements typical of the Mediterranean, such as rocky paths, dry stone walls, elegant arches.
