Italian Urban Garden


Barcelona-based Nabito Architects has transformed a vacant piece of land within the residential neighbourhood of Corso Lazio in Frosinone, central Italy, into a creative public space inspired by the five senses.

According to Nabito, the project was conceived as a ‘personal living room in a public realm,’ as part of the town’s master plan to revitalise the neighbourhood.

A variety of plants, materials and colourfully painted concrete circles across uneven ground levels offer a refreshed space for social interaction and play.
