Santa Luzia Garden  Funchal


Urbiágua has developed the aquatic motifs of Santa Luzia Garden, consisting of a series of water mirrors and waterfalls. This green space, located in the center of Funchal, was once occupied by the sugar industry of Madeira, called Hinton and the Turreão. Considered a "jewel of the local archeology", its restoration occurred in 2004, whose contemporary architecture integrates the cultural character of the Madeira landscape, with respect to the design of the space, materials and floristic biodiversity exemplary comparing to older gardens located on the island.

The Landscape Architect Luís Paulo Ribeiro from TOPIARIS obtained, in 2005, an honorable mention in the National Landscape Architecture Prize, in Portugal.
