As a modern landscape architecture project, the Stavros Niarchos Park has been designed in accordance with the principles of viability and sustainability, respecting the surrounding ecosystems and the ever-changing landscape. It is a welcoming and open space, with plantings and an overall character reflecting the Mediterranean landscape.
The starting point for the SNFCC’s landscape design is the architectural concept of creating a hill, which develops a new relationship between the city and the sea. A Mediterranean peak unfolds on the hill’s surface, with its own distinct ecology and structure. Solid plantings at the base of the hill, with olive trees, cypresses, pines and aromatic shrubs, complement the upwards ascend, until only a few meters before the top of the hill. In the upper part of the hill, the grass surfaces signal—with their height and airy texture—the arrival at the highest point.
Deborah Nevins and Elli Pangalou talk about the Park’s creation, from its conception to its completion.
