2322_Joaquina Lake

We understand that the problem of redeveloping the Joaquina Rita Bier Lake Park is based on the harmonious integration of nature and the needs of the community. The project presented aims to bring together the expectations related to the creation of outdoor spaces organized scenically based on strategic visuals with the relevant solution for all the infrastructure intended for the comfort of users.

A number of guiding principles were adopted for the design and development of the project: the use of native vegetation; historical preservation and enhancement; urban permeability; and landscape quality.

The proposed accesses and routes organize the direction of flows within the landscaped environment and are key elements beyond the experience of the walk, also being fundamental in organizing the occupation of uses in the space, integrating the user and the equipment harmoniously with the natural environment.

Concerning the plant masses, three biomes have been set up in order to respond to the factors specific to the site where these new species are implemented, grouped together in order to reinforce these distinct characters of the different landscapes made possible by the native flora itself: the Country Flora; the Tropical Flora and the Flower Gardens.

Architecturally, the park houses buildings of important historical and social value to the city of Gramado, such as the former Parque Hotel, now the Municipal Secretariat of Culture, the former Brizoleta, the atelier, and the ten Chalets. The project includes the addition of two major new structures. The most prominent is a 39-meter-high viewpoint, proposed as the only point where you can see the city from above and also the Quilombo Valley to the east in the same panorama.

In this space, the second projected building houses the Café do Lago. The building is attached to the one housing the Atelier, with a blind gable and a direct relationship with the lagoon shore, comfortably placed in the shade of the trees characteristic of that part of the park. All the trees are kept, and the architecture radiates from the studio building through the trees, revealing a compact floor plan, but with dramatically accentuated views in different directions.

In view of research into the importance of visual permeability and open access to the park, the existing fencing was removed, ensuring a closer relationship between the sidewalks and the intervention area. The Joaquina Rita Bier Lake Park requalification project goes beyond the pragmatic viability of consolidated uses, offering distinct spaces and equipment with authorial urban furniture that invites its use for various everyday situations. Finally, we see these qualities as important if the redevelopment of this landscape is to be consolidated and become part of the city.
