The Wirtz Gardens

Part III

Photographs by Bertrand Limbour.

“[Jacques Wirtz's] painterly handling of light and shadow, like that of 17th-century Flemish painters, gives him 'a great power to evoke space . . . '” —Pilar Viladas, The New York Times

The third installment in the acclaimed, gorgeously designed Wirtz Gardens publications presents 32 gardens designed by the Belgian landscape-design virtuosos Peter Wirtz, Martin Wirtz and Jacques Wirtz—a mixture of private, public and corporate projects in Belgium, Switzerland, Japan, the US, France and England. For the first time, private projects in the US and Switzerland are shown, alongside more unusual projects such as the cloister gardens of the Hauterive Abbey in Switzerland; Wirtz's 2012 stage set for a Dior fashion show; and a secluded Japanese garden with a view of Mount Fuji. Every garden is accompanied, as it was before, by its plan and a brief text.

Jacques Wirtz founded his practice in Schoten, Belgium, in 1950. The company has since become a thriving family business, with Wirtz’s two sons, Martin and Peter, joining the firm. Gardens in Belgium and all its neighboring countries, plus Italy, Switzerland and the US, are underway; past work has been undertaken in Japan, Spain and Portugal.

Wirtz International’s private projects range from small courtyards to large estates, corporate headquarters, business parks and housing developments; public projects consist of parks, boulevards, city squares, university campuses, museums and streetscapes.

Just in time for Mother's Day: The Wirtz Gardens III

Just in time for Mother's Day: The Wirtz Gardens III

The subtle yet surprising landscape designs of Peter, Martin and Jacques Wirtz are world renowned for their painterly sense of light, space and volume. Hedges may look like giant, weightless pom-poms or geometric lanes; fields may appear to be perfectly manicured or wonderfully windblown; reflecting pools, arcades, graded hills, and always astonishing vistas, abound. Featured image, of the garden surrounding a guesthouse in a German corporate park, is reproduced from the third and newest volume of The Wirtz Gardens, a staff favorite for Mother's Day, and a must-have or anyone interested in gardens or landscape design. "One long month every year, visitors can walk between white, pink, purple or cream yellow flower bunches that announce the graceful summer canopy shapes." continue to blog
