The existing, park-like garden is of high quality. The garden as a monument reveals traces of history. Mindful of the competing demands of use requirements and aims for tranquillity and peace, we test our attentiveness and write a new chapter of garden history. The building fits into the old stand of trees and is in close dialogue with it. New plantings of hydrangeas along the path mediate between garden and built structure in a lovely, gardenesque way. The magnolias dance between the buildings and play on the many colourful primroses dotting the lawns.
