Landscaping Requirements and Considerations

1m 59s

Russell Buchanan of Buchanan Architecture walks us through the schematic design phase of his residential project in Crested Butte, CO.  He discusses the importance of capitalizing on views and solar orientation, and how they influenced the building layout. He also sketches out a bubble diagram to illustrate the spatial and functional relationships as well as the structural grid.

However, some projects don't require a landscape architect, but they might have landscaping guidelines that are part of the project, and any architect needs to understand and be aware of what those landscape requirements are. Most of the time, the landscape requirements deal with what kinds of plants do well in this environment, and they will then restrict us to using that particular species of plant. A good example is an oak tree.
