The "Jardin Secret" is a magical place in the heart of old Medina of Marrakech, today opened to the public. The project wanted to recreate the original garden, hidden by unauthorized constructions that occupied it for centuries. The asimmetrical shape of the site motivated us to create two different and simmetrical gardens, different for shape and dimensions. The two are separate by an "chicane" entrance that permet to discover the big garden with more surprise, not in a directly way, according with the moroccan tradition. The irrigation system has been recuperated and the old historical tower and the pavillon are being restaurated according to the local building tradition.
