Discover The Healing Power Of Biophilic Design: From Mental Health To Physical Improvements

Why Should You Adopt Biophilic Design?

Even though biophilic design has been a part of architecture and interiors since ancient ages, it seems like the interior design industry gravitated towards a more “fast fashion” like industry, only used to assert status. This practice is extremely unsustainable, it also doesn't let you fully enjoy all the benefits a place has to offer.

In recent years though, the Biophilic approach to design has become increasingly popular as people seek to create healthier, sustainable environments that are in tune with the natural world because of its beneficial properties and aesthetic appeal.

We Are Made For Biophilic Design.

Scientific researches found that we as humans have a constant attraction towards life and what lives. We agree with Pablo Alvarez’s beautiful words in his article on Redfin: 

Introducing nature into your home design is not just for aesthetics but it is a reflection of our desire to reconnect with the environment. By infusing your living spaces with the beauty of the natural world, you can live in a more relaxing space that promotes your well-being, creativity, and a deeper appreciation for the world around you. So, let nature in, and transform your home into a restful sanctuary where modern luxury meets natural beauty.”

How can you not agree with it? Nature is one of earth's medicines.

Scientists Confirm The Positive Effects Of Biophilic Design. 

 Nature makes our heart beat slower and therefore feel calmer. It makes us breathe fresher air, increasing oxygen levels in our blood and stabilizing blood pressure. These physical improvements result in increased productivity and creativity making it a useful and aesthetically appealing design. 

  In a 2015 Human Spaces report, it’s said that those whose environments incorporated natural elements reported a 15% higher well being score and a 6% higher productivity score than employees whose offices didn’t include such elements. Other studies have shown that, in an average living space, five medium-sized plants can increase air quality by around 75% and mental health by 60%

Biophilic Design: Ally In the Battle For The Environment.

Despite our need for nature, urban designs often prioritize concrete over green spaces, leading to urban sprawl, pollution, and a lack of parks and trees. This disconnects us from nature, reducing outdoor activities, biodiversity, and contributing to health issues. 

Adopting and supporting the spread of green architecture and design has improved environmental impacts like energy efficiency and water usage, generally enhancing our need to care for nature, a crucial element of sustainable development.
