Yves Rocher headquarters
La Gacilly, France - invited
At the Headquarters of the Yves Rocher Co, the purposely geometrical outlines contrast with the planned overflowing of the vegetation. The atmospheres of the gardens are inspired by the various landscape typologies and recall the multiples aspects of vegetal world. The pathway passes through several spaces: bamboo forest, orchard, arboretum, flowers and aromatic plants, pond. We found interesting the method of progressive planning of the park’s vegetal abundance. We designed the frame, the paths, the entrances, the vegetal logic, and then we took time to watch the place evolving, letting the time to measure the slow progression in the scenery.
