Biophilic Design

Merging the built and natural environment

Invest in your team

Biophilic design is a way of merging the built and natural environment. As humans we have an affinity towards nature, plants and the outdoors. Spending long working hours in a man made artificial environment we lose connection with nature and all of its benefits.
Well researched neurological and physiological evidence from The Economics of Biophilia, Terrapin indicates the health and productivity benefits from biophilic design to include:

• 11% increase in staff productivity from fresh air
• 23% improvement in productivity from good lighting and access to views
• 25% percent better functioning memory when workers have outside views
• 18% percent increase in productivity through access to daylight

Another study featured in our blog suggests that biophilic design is responsible for increasing your employees productivity by 6% and creativity by 15%.
