Looking Inside Out

How a landscape looks from inside should be just as important as how it looks from outside. When designing landscapes many people, including landscape designers don’t take into consideration how it will be viewed from inside the building it surrounds. The vista from your window links your living or working space with the outdoors and can greatly enhance the way you feel. How many of us have worked in windowless offices or spaces that have no connection to the outside and felt trapped and cut off from what is happening outside. These spaces disconnect us from the natural world and create an artifical environment. Views from windows and large areas of glass can become living artwork that you can watch change, not only as seasons change but also as the light changes during the course of the day. What’s is outside your window and how does it make you feel?
