Be One With Your Surroundings
Beyond the walls and windows, your surroundings are apart of your architectural environment. The landscape forming the boundary of your buildings – the trees and grass, the pathways and lights, all play apart in balancing your grand design between natural and cultural.
Here’s why that matters.
Enhanced Quality Of Life
Elements of a landscape can impact your environment in a real way.
Having plenty of grass and trees offers cooling shade and absorbs heat.On top of that, it helps with preventing erosion around your foundations,and topsoil from being washed away.
Water features like pools and ponds can cool the air entering your building, sending in a nice draught. Not only can these elements be functional,but they also add a unique aesthetic to any landscape too.
Imagine stepping outside your front door to a cool breeze blowing over your pond,set in a gorgeous garden your neighbours are jealous of.
More Than Looks
A harmonic environment, whether it’s at your office or your own home, can do wonders for your well being. Picture this: you step out of your home office for a break. You’ve been staring at your laptop screen for hours now so you figure you should go outside for a breath of fresh air. What do you step you to?
A bright sunny afternoon fills the sky. You soak in the natural light before taking a seat on a wooden bench under the cover of a shady tree. This brief moment of being disconnected and enjoying the beauty of your surroundings is revitalizing, and you can’t wait for the next moment.
