Site planning in landscape architecture and architecture refers to the organizational stage of the landscape design process. It involves the organization of land use zoning, access, circulation, privacy, security, shelter, land drainage, and other factors. This is done by arranging the compositional elements of landform, planting, water, buildings and paving and building. Site planning generally begins by assessing a potential site for development through site analysis. Information about slope, soils, hydrology, vegetation, parcel ownership, orientation, etc. are assessed and mapped. By determining areas that are poor for development (such as floodplain or steep slopes) and better for development, the planner or architect can assess the optimal location and design a structure that works within this space.
There is a lot to consider when choosing a site to build on. This video takes a look at the different ways to design with the surroundings in mind.
A beautiful entryway is one of those discrete necessities that can have a major effect in your home's look and feel. Like trim or molding, most entryways go genuinely unnoticed, however, they can dramatically affect the appearance of the home/room. Since the greater part of us buy or lease homes with the entryways already installed, we frequently look directly past them.
