Four Seasons Baku

Medieval City meets the Caspian Sea
Four Seasons Baku sits on the edge of Baku's medieval city, overlooking Philharmonic Garden with views to the Caspian Sea.

The development of Four Seasons Baku in the historic quarter of the city created the opportunity to propose a new public garden and piazza for the capital of Azerbaijan. The hotel and private dining terrace is situated elevated to the garden piazza to create privacy and afford an outlook for guests and visitors to the restaurant.

Formal gardens of clipped evergreen hedging, topiary trees and crisp lawns were proposed to directly relate to the architectural columns and archways leading from the restaurant and create a strong sense of cohesion between the architecture and landscape. Ancient olives sourced from Sicily and a palette of plants tolerant of coastal climates were individually selected from the nursery ensured a robust and stunning display for both hotel guests and members of the public using the garden.
Bubbling fountain jets in delicately tiled pools create a prestigious setting for the Four Seasons hotel, with a soft simple white and light-yellow planting scheme adding a classical and elegant character to the garden.
