Determine whether or not you want this space to have any special features for relaxation or food preparation. Outdoor kitchens are a major trend in backyard designs, but they can also be added to elevated and well-supported structures like balconies or terraces. Some people even install hot tubs or small wading pools depending upon their balcony sizes and their household needs. These are features that are cheaper and easier to add in at the start of construction then they are after building is done.
While landscaping can add immensely to the value, beauty and comfort of a church site, most architectural firms do not provide detailed landscaping design in their scope of services unless specifically requested by the owner. Many jurisdictions will require a rudimentary landscaping plan consisting of a site plan indicating the location, type and size of new and existing trees and shrubs, areas of sod and mulch, as well as an erosion control plan. It is now common for permit authorities to require landscaping islands in the parking areas based upon the amount of pavement. These islands are usually located at the ends of parking rows. Landscaping islands, however, can become an impediment to snow removal. In transition yards (a green area separating the church parking lot or buildings from adjoining residential or commercial property) a screen of trees and shrubs is also often required by permit authorities.
Some elements of good design include stairs or stadium seating on the sides with easy access to the main floor, two steps per row for added visibility, high-back pews to alleviate the fear of falling forward, glass or narrow rails in the upper half of balcony walls, and large-screen video monitors or projection screens.
Roof terraces, gardens and balcony designs also have an opportunity to incorporate unlimited measures of greenery too, thanks to Corten steel planters, ranging from small modular planters through to giant planters teaming with greenery. Easy to install and effortless to move, the flexibility that planters, such as the Perimeta range of planters from Kinley Systems, is only limited by the imagination of the landscape architect and designer.
