A subtropical garden for an architectural gem of Guerrero Strachan
An ambitious landscape project conceived as a continuation of Parque de Malaga.
Numerous specimens of Roystoneas, Woodeytia, Phoenix, Kentias or Plumeria were planted alongside the existing alignments of Phoenix canariensis, with more than 100 different species among palm trees, trees, shrubs and perennials.
The garden created in the Miramar Hotel pursues the Malaga landscape tradition started in the nineteenth century by the Loring Heredia family in their farm “La Concepción”, currently converted into the botanical garden of Malaga.
The southern garden consists of landscaped roofs, as the construction of the underground car park for the hotel’s guests was necessary. This made planting tree species impossible. Only one exemplary Tipuana tipu was left, thanks to an infrastructure specially designed to keep its voluminous root system intact.
