This is a glorious courtyard that deftly uses trees and bushes to accentuate the marble material used as flooring. The reason I like this juxtaposition so much is that it blends the artificial with the natural in a way that creates a visual balance. It is important when designing a landscape area to think about aesthetic balances, even if the majority of the design is artificial. In this case they have sided with more of an artificial construction, but the beige tones and great lighting help to give the place a natural light appearance. This is not an easy thing to pull off.
