In this thesis, the relation between the ruins combined with the forest landscape is investigated. Through landscape analysis and through the history of the estates, as well as through its use today, hiking and bicycle routes are proposed, through which the visitor comes into contact with the history of these estates, observing both the existing buildings and the natural beauty of the landscape. Specifically, six routes are proposed, with gradations in difficulty level from two different entries of the estate.
Subsequently, wooden structures are located on different places in the estates, along the proposed routes, with the aim of facilitating the visitors while enhancing the recreational use. In this way, α mild intervention take place in the landscape converting the visitors from observers to active users. Specifically, a construction for rest and food is designed, a construction for toilets which collects the rain water, a fountain which is designed with the same construction rules as the toilet, a playground and an observation tower.
Like the leaves fall into the ground, different surfaces fall into the ground as well, without intervening it. As they fall, the surfaces are divided into individual sections, each one is transformed to create from kiosks to seats. Furthermore, these sections are adjusted according to the location of the trees around them. In this way, a dialog is created between the natural and the artificial element.
