Lein Design Inc.Maintains a philosophy that designing involves the concept of blending art and architecture, this combination forms an underlay for necessary plants and other soft materials.
Great design must blend nature's gifts with a deep understanding of man's needs, creating a satisfying sense of harmony and cultivating it over time. This is the 'art' of landscape architectural design and one of the driving principal concepts we establish with our clientele.
Site PlanningCan be considered a compromise between the site modified to work with site and building program elements or the program prepared to take into account the features of a site.
The designer of the site must be involved with the site planning process from the start or beginning of the project - especially the site selection.
The art of design, planning, or management of the land. Site planning is the art of arranging structures on the land and shaping the spaces between, an art linked to architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, and city planning.
Developed SitesBuildings can serve as sculpture; they can also be arranged or clustered to enclose space; when the design attitude of the building includes sculpture the site is better viewed and appreciated; of course the designers task is to display this sculpture (building) in its most positive sense.
When the building encloses exterior space, site elements become the furniture within this new exterior architectural room; remember the character of the space and its contents should support and complement each other; when the site becomes highly integrated a natural common theme and sense of place occurs.
