Gomde Buddhist Centre nestles in the foothills of the Austrian Alps. It provides an authentic environment for the study and practice of Buddhism, making its rich heritage available to an international audience.
The centre is housed in an impressive manor house sheltering a large inner courtyard. Its fifteen acres of land includes a small natural forest and offers breath-taking views. We were asked to design a garden to replace the car park, and it's been a wonderful process of transformation. Climatic restrictions made for much research, but over the last few years we've overseen The Wisdom Garden's development into a place of unfolding beauty. Cloud-pruned incense Junipers mark the four corners of the raised area, a spring-fed pool is dotted with boulders and cotton grass, and an infinite looping path encourages contemplation.
