leisure park Tehov

modifications around the emerging pump track, planting in the surrounding landscape

Proposal of plantings for newly established leisure park was built on architecture study of atelier Progres, which is designed as a place for meetings of locals, cultural events and sport’s actvity. The project’s character is oriented on off-road cycling - pumptrack and biketrial track.

Design principles are based on specific area placement on the edge of village, landscape context, existing vegetation characteristics such as a riparian plants along stream. Main theme is a clear linkage and gradation of vegetation density from extra-urban towards village and a composition of three elements tree alley - meadow - grove. Then there is hiding and exploring of views and landmarks among trees - church, oak brothers, landscape view and covering the buildings. 

Realization was ensured by village governance itself. It’s why most of the work wasn't done according to documentation but author’s supervision - partly by voluntary help and employers of village.
