The importance of knowing how to break barriers and interact with nature
ARK’s philosophy is to dialogue with nature. For this, they use geometric shapes as a language and from there idyllic environments are created, always respecting the bases on which it is being created. For Manuel R. Moriche, creative director of the firm, “each place, each landscape, each atmosphere, each project is unique. Respecting the environment, playing with its same language, merging with the surrounding landscape, are essential elements to ensure that the house is perfectly inserted in the natural environment ”.
When ARK begins with a garden design, the species that are selected can always be easily adapted to the environment. It is essential to “blend in with the place. Be kind with our intervention, that the place accepts us, sticking to it, not imposing itself. If to build one of our villas we have to cut down exemplary trees, we try to move them away or save them. Our respect for nature is above all ”, clarifies Manuel R. Moriche.
The fact of integrating nature at home not only helps to create that environment in which you breathe calm, but also influences the energy efficiency of the home. Inserting green roofs, vertical gardens or green walls will make the construction more sustainable.
