Landscape architects help bring a space to life with the intelligent use of various factors such as greenery, sculptures and structures that give the place a definition. The architecture evokes and engages the inhabitants to talk and meet with friends, or find a spot to sit quietly with strangers to share a view. The powerful experience of simply walking through a courtyard clad in a careful selection of materials whilst admiring nature, landscape and artwork, creates a rich experience of not just having lived in a place but having truly experienced it in the beauty of its space, light, form making it a complete spatial experience of joy.
