The landscaping for the “Harmony Hotel Suites 3” (location: Sunny Beach resort, Bulgaria) was made from scratch. The client could not give our study a clear direction for the vision of the garden. He only said, “I want a jungle, no asphalt or tiles are allowed, if possible – just grass.” He also showed us some pictures downloaded from the Internet. Some pictures were of Japanese gardens, and some were from New Zealand, photos of Hobbit houses made for the film. So I decided to design a project with a more naturalistic look, more arched forms of streets and green areas. Every morning for a month of hard work, when I sat at my computer I did not know what would happen with the project at the end of the day, the ideas were running through my head all the time. —Dimitar Gongalov
