Landscape Design and Integration, Charlotte, NC
My goal is to create truly livable houses and beyond by providing families with functional spaces integrated with landscape design.
Landscape Design and Integration in Charlotte – The landscaping that surrounds your home is the first thing that visitors notice, as it establishes a certain atmosphere or ambiance and, thus, sets up their expectations of life beyond the front door. Similarly, the “sense of place” of the interior spaces is greatly influenced by the manner in which the spaces are integrated with nature.
If you feel like your existing house or your proposed future house needs to be better integrated with nature, turn to me, Paul B. Clark, Architect.
I provide landscape design services in Charlotte, North Carolina and the surrounding towns as I embrace environmentally conscious design. Moreover, I am a strong advocate of Biophilic Design. This form of design is meant to enhance a client’s innate love of nature by highlighting sunlight, breezes, and views of flowers and trees throughout the house, whether it is traditional or has a modern, open floor plan. When you work with me, I will rely on these principles in order to create a design plan that brings out your yard’s best features and ultimately creates a relaxing oasis for you.
Before I start the landscape design process, it is critical that you provide me with information about how you use (or would like to use) your yard and what features you would like to include in it.
For example, you should let me know if:
- You want a designated play area in your yard for your children
- You would like to include a space in your yard specifically for growing flowers or vegetables
- You and your family members would benefit from having a relaxing patio/terrace
This information will allow me to create and execute a conceptual landscape design plan that meets your family’s functional needs while also being aesthetically pleasing. To find out more about my landscape design services, please contact me today.
Not unlike Luis Barragán (1902-1988), the architect who constructed sumptuous houses to interact with nature, I strive to truly integrate landscape and architecture. Barragán wrote, “I believe that architects should design gardens to be used, as much as the houses they build, to develop a sense of beauty and the taste and inclination toward the fine arts and other spiritual values.” And further, “Any work of architecture which does not express serenity is a mistake.” (Muriel Emanuel (ed.). Contemporary Architects. St. Martin’s Press: 1980)
