The position of the Bezdin Monastery and its relation with the natural landscape of Lunca Mureșului resulted in considering the built ensemble as part of a landscape fragment, as a component of the cultural landscape found within the limits of the Lunca Mureșului Natural Park. Once the idea of reviving the monastery complex came up, a question of the need for intervention on the surrounding landscape was raised, intervention made by integrating the free plot from the church’s property. The approach of the intervention proposal is related to the overall image that is to be obtained and aims to improve the already existing landscape fragment, by mixing the existing layers with new elements and emphasizing the value on both the whole ensemble and the cultural landscape to which it belongs.
