Where Gardens meet light

The garden is a place where man and nature can meet;

it’s an encounter that promotes creativity because man belongs to nature. The impetuous rise of technology has inevitably led to a deep rift between man and nature.

Reconciliation is however necessary for our wellbeing. This yearning springs from our innate Biophilia (love of life), a concept introduced by biologist Edward Wilson, who writes: “it’s not possible to live a healthy and complete life far from nature, we need a direct contact with

all forms of life and with the complex geometry of natural shapes as much as we needto metabolize nutrients and oxygen. ”

In a beautiful garden there can be a complete palette of colours found in the texture of leaves, barks and flowers …and it’s through light that we can see, watch and admire them. “Where gardens meet Light” comes from an awareness of these essential values and the

desire to make our own mission, joining our skills and knowledge gained over the years, to create a new design and applicative methods to gardens that can enhance people’s wellbeing.

This innovative design gives attention to the shape of spaces, combined with a rich green composition, in line with the principles of colour therapy, integrated with a soft artificial lighting respectful of nature, but highly evocative and stimulating: gardens that stimulate our

senses in the sunshine and under the moon.

A PLACE THAT HEALS

It has been proved, thanks to numerous scientific studies at universities all over the world, that “The presence of a garden or park in a residential facility, its vision and enjoyment has a positive impact on people who live within the structure itself” ( Ulrich, 1984).

Views of trees and green areas, around hospitals and health care facilities, reduce the hospital stay, reducing the use of drugs, antidepressants and analgesics.
A design approach according to the requirements promoted by “Where Garden meet Light “allows to give an added value to the

garden, above all in the facilities, both care that day care, where patients, after the sunset, have no longer access to the outdoor

areas. A correct garden lighting design, delicate but sensitive to the emotional and scenographic power of light, all respecting nature,

can extend the vision time. Warm light, some well studied colours based on colour therapy principles, lighten emotions

that, when darkness falls with the end of the day, can lead into a “bad mood”.

Workshop

Where Gardens meet Light promotes workshops for professional associations, addressed to designers, structured in an innovative way both for originality of the topics and for the various and multidisciplinary teaching.
