The process of integrating exterior and interior features often begins with a desire to both physically enhance the occupant experience inside the built environment while also addressing energy efficiency and sustainability goals. Integrating a building into the landscape allows architects to design for the environment and lowers a building’s ecological footprint. Architects and landscape architects, building owners, occupants, and building visitors can all benefit from creative, aesthetic, and sustainable designs that merge seamlessly with the environment of the site location.
