What Is iophilic Design?
Biophilic design is a human-centred design approach that incorporates a number of key design principles. This inclusive way of designing will deliver tangible and financial benefits to the triple bottom line of people, planet and performance.
Biophilic design draws from our innate attraction to nature and natural processes to improve the many spaces we inhabit. It will often incorporate 3 key core principles, often which include multi-sensory interactions:
Nature of the space, nature in the space and natural analogues.
Through strengthening the human connection with nature, we can deliver significant benefits to the health and wellbeing of building occupants. This, in turn, can improve people’s experiences of spaces and their ability to perform tasks.
