Atelier Partero：It is typical for this place and garden that its programme and form strongly reflect the progressive and practical spirit of “Bata” Zlín. While the garden may be dominated by order and structure, the result is harmony and balance. The concept for the garden was inspired by Zlin;s historic development that was based on utilitarian design philosophy with principles of good, reasonable and cost efficient architecture that delivers a good quality of life meeting the practical needs and standard aesthetic.
Spatially, the hillside garden is divided into four terraces, each of which has a designated function with elements and plants supporting each of these spaces. The sloping location of the garden offered wonderful views of the city and orchards hills of the “Zlínské Paseky”, the typical known landscape of Zlin. Therefore, the terraces sliced the site following the natural sloping gradient and an appropriate direction to enjoy an openness to the sky and views of the surrounding landscape.
The main terrace by the house is touched by a carpet of diagonal bands of lavender. An atypical flowerbed that will bloom and smell beautifully without compromising the view. They create an evergreen ornament that can be enjoyed from different levels of perspective. The diagonality breaks the rectangular unity of the terraces’ shapes and adds a touch of elegance and simplicity to the garden.
A terrace below hides a minimalist seating space with a steel fireplace, taking advantage of the rocky retaining wall as a back support. It is immediately followed by a sloping bed of simple grasses, and a shield of evergreen bamboo that sets an entirely different mood within the garden. It becomes a sweet spot that can be enjoyed by sunset with a glass of wine.
The lowest terrace is more of a utilitarian one. Edible plants are found here. In a hidden corner, two raised beds are specialized for herbs and sweet strawberries. The rest of the narrow strip is gracefully planted by the Moravian classics of plum trees.
This garden is another space where despite its size and difficult terrain, we manage to balance spaces of all needs. The geometric order dominating the design of the garden does not strip it away of elegance but neatly manages the terrain with hidden spots for discovery and privacy. Despite its minimalist design, the garden evokes feelings of playfulness and joy. It is worth noting that the nature of the owners, who take absolute exemplary care of the garden, contributes greatly to this feeling, and the homemade lavender syrup from the main terrace is simply the best!
