FOREGROUND

It’s important to have a comfortable work space – after all, it’s where most of us in the landscape industry spend the majority of our days, behind a desk – researching, planning, and bringing ideas to life. However, no matter what industry you are in, having an office that is inviting can make all the difference to your job productivity. A company that recognises the benefits of having a good working environment is Walt Disney. They enlisted the services of Clara Billoch from Estudio de Paisajismo to create a positive work space for their headquarters in Argentina, to see how the landscape design team used a series of winding paths, an orchard and woodland garden to help boost staff morale.

Along with good working conditions, where we live is just as important and G&Co have the answer with their latest development, Millennium Estates in Dubai. The premium gated community mixes luxury with superior amenities, to create a residential space of convenience. We also profile another Dubai project by Meraas - Al Seef, a new destination offering retail, dining, and hospitality experiences. The company is committed to enriching Dubai’s tourism industry by rejuvenating Dubai Creek into a new tourism destination. The company wanted to embrace the Emirati culture and yet at the same time shape the modern lifestyle of the city. This new development, which has attracted substantial new thinking and investment in Dubai, is one of the UAE’s most popular destinations.
