Open Spaces And Their Increasing Importance

Classically defined as areas that are green, accessible and open to the sky, open spaces in residential townships are proving to be increasingly important. Open spaces can be further classified into various terms or definitions like green space, urban greenery, public space, public gardens and parks.

Urban open spaces are considered as one aspect of the city environment that is dynamic in daily life for people living in urban areas. They play an important role in creating healthier and more liveable communities by providing positive environmental, social and economic benefits.

Why are open spaces more desirable than ever?

In the wake of the pandemic, as more and more people adapt to the new normal and spend longer hours working from the comfort of their home, there’s a reinforced need for open space indoors and in the surroundings of our residence. We have been spending a lot of time at home which therefore has led to the emergence of needs which earlier were thought of as luxury but are now a necessity. There is a growing need of having enough space to cater the needs of every family member, from WFH corners for adults to online school spaces for children.

Besides wielding a great impact on mental and physical well-being, open spaces enhance other aspects like life expectancy, productivity and happiness. Open spaces are also associated with better air quality, reduced traffic noise, cooler temperatures, and greater biodiversity. Furthermore, recent estimates by the World Health Organisation surmise that around 4 million people deaths annually are caused by a lack of physical activity, mostly as a result of poor walkability and limited access to recreational areas.

In the absence of easily accessible open spaces, many homeowners moved to gardening and grew a greater appreciation for open spaces. The last two years have helped homeowners realise the increasing importance of having spaces that allow us to connect with nature.
