13 home projects improved by landscaping

A healthy and visually appealing environment in our homes has become increasingly sought after when it comes to designing homes and residential spaces, especially in today’s global context. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is to design the landscape in a thoughtful way that complements the built project. The art of landscaping is the arrangement of the raw material elements of nature, such as vegetation and planting, combined with non-living elements, such as exterior structures, paving and terraces, to create site-specific solutions that enhance the outdoor spaces of a project.

The discipline requires very specific knowledge and techniques which many times extend beyond architectural fields per se, and that is why architecture and landscape design has emerged as a branch of design expertise. This has made it very common for architects to resort to working collaboratively with landscaping offices when working on residential projects.

Particularly in residential landscape architecture, we have found two main ways of resolving gardens, depending on the setting and context in which the project is located. In houses already established in natural and green environments, the main objective of landscaping is to tame this outdoor greenery as you approach the house. On the other hand, when the project is located in denser residential areas, the challenge is to integrate the greenery as much as possible into the house through the terraces, the exterior floors and the interior courtyards.
