Big Fish Landscapes
The gardens of the Italian Renaissance have inspired and been used as backdrops for everything from fashion to film, and are still hugely popular with garden visitors and holidaymakers. The BrandAlley Garden draws on their rich design heritage to create a garden representing the ultimate aspirational lifestyle experience.
The design is principally inspired by three gardens on the Italian Riviera: Palazzo Doria-Tursi, Villa Cambiaso and Villa Durazzo-Centurione. Formal in appearance, the garden draws elements from the three major evolutions in garden design from that period. These are the use of clipped hedges to create rooms from the Early Renaissance; formal sculpture and buildings from the Imperial Renaissance; and the idea of water play with grottos, fountains and jets from the Late Renaissance.
