In this sense, we have undertaken a work whose foundation is found for the first time in restoring and re-saturating overlapping spaces, rather than creating new ones based exclusively on design. However, aesthetics have also been looked for in the project and it has been ensured that everything is designed and, of course, all the work carried out during the implementation phase, leads to the immediate enhancement of this new garden. Thus, we have achieved a balanced mix of economic, environmental and aesthetic factors that must complement a procedure of this magnitude, and embody the concept of environmental, economic and social sustainability that any urban project must inevitably consider.
