Konyushennaya Square

St. Petersburg, Russia

This project encompasses the restoration and renovation of a historic, city-center stable building. Its landscape design observes traditional formality with clipped hedging and pyramidal containerized trees providing order, while seasonal planting allows the garden to spring to life during the region’s short summer months. Well-defined edges and geometries of hard and soft materials ensure that the garden is evident during the winter when snow blankets the landscape. A series of pavilion structures, water features and statues populate and animate the space.
