In fact, time in green spaces is recognised as essential to wellbeing, with a whopping 95% of respondents agreeing that spending time in nature was ‘very important’ to them. During a stressful time, people have experienced what science has been telling us for some time – that too much time inside is not good for our physical and mental wellbeing.
A green solution
With so much to gain from the outdoors, developers are recognising that with the right design and installation, landscaped spaces are proving a big selling point to residents.
Zones created for residents, from playgrounds and all-weather table tennis, through to terraces designed to encourage social interaction, or quiet spaces where residents can unwind.
Outdoor areas can work hard for residents and developers as one of our recent projects, Bagel Factory, in E9 shows. We worked closely with our client Aitch Group to bring their vision for the best of creative urban living to life.
