Use negative spaces wisely. The flat void between these two buildings might have been a place to park the car or stash waste and recycling bins. But now, in the hands of a gifted designer, this opening contains a collection of botanical and man-made elements. Together they create a focal point that makes the entire landscape feel cohesive.
I love the interplay between the bosk and the various-size metal orbs on the ground. I love how the gaps between the tree trunks and the artwork can be navigated so anyone visiting walks through the space (rather than just observes it). This space is modern and understated — but certainly makes a powerful design statement.
