JARDIM / A nature escape

Jardim, a nature escape in the heart of Alentejo.
How to turn 40 hectares of hilly land into a naturally diverse, rich and resilient community?
Constructing a series of buildings, laying out a few kilometers of paths and letting yearly hundreds of people visit and enjoy a precious piece of authentic Portuguese nature is an action that needs care. At Jardim, this will only be done with respect to nature.
Architectural interventions will be minimized, while outdoor living and taking care of the current vegetation and enriching the land’s fertility and diversity will be privileged. Jardim is a place to get in touch with nature, rewild, learn, discover and disconnect from urbanity.
Jardim will be an example of a future-proof, durable and socially sustainable community. The project has now received building permit and seeks like-minded partners.
