Planning a commercial housing complex or office building? Here are some great ideas on designing your new building and commercial landscaping.
Create a Stunning Entrance
They say that a person has only one chance to make a first impression. Well, buildings also have only one chance. That’s why you need to make sure that the outer facade of the building, as well as the entrance, is welcoming, homey, and a thing of beauty. Another thing that should be fancy is the entrance lobby, which is the first glimpse of the interior that people see.
Add Some Outdoor Furniture
It’s a good idea to have some benches near the entrance outdoors. This will allow people and office workers to get some fresh air during their breaks. Place these benches under some greenery for some shade and change of scenery. The outside furniture can even match the inside furniture.
Leave Room for Things to Grow
If you are planting trees, shrubs, bushes, or other plants around the exterior of your building, make sure that they have some extra room. Although everything may fit at the beginning, these plants need room to grow.
Keep It Bright
Make sure that light fixtures are installed on the building’s exteriors and along the entrance walkways. During the winter, when it gets dark early, some office workers will be leaving in the dark. You don’t want them slipping on ice or snow.
