A place to be, to admire, to live a different realm of smells, colors, ambiences, textures, feelings. Exotic and contemporary, the garden provides a detachment of the usual reality in a different ground of experiences.
Concealed and closed, secret and personal, the Garden in its concept, evolved from the need of abstraction, from the need to live a dream. They say it started in the land of Babylon, in the land of Baghdad. (…) Villa Sayid Garden is not an attempt to recreate the "Paradise Garden", but a contemporary approach to its features. To introduce the experiences, ambient and feelings created by these elements, in the light of nowadays life, needs and way of living. (…)
The garden and the reconstruction of the Villa were created side by side, respecting view points and what is seen from the house to the Garden and Landscape and vice-versa.
