BIOPHILIC DESIGN

Biophilic Design refers to the human experience and connection with nature and its elements.

In Greek, Biophilia roughly translates to ‘the love of living things.’

While Biophilic Design or Biophilia mainly refers to the natural environment being implemented into the space, it also means overlapping the use of plants with images of nature. Facing things towards windows to view the outdoors. Which allows you to not only surround yourself with it but see it wherever you choose to spend your time.

Psychological responses to emotions, adaptability, alertness, and mood can be linked directly to nature and our exposure to its elements. Having our senses make direct or indirect contact with nature helps lower anxiety, boost serotonin, and lower fatigue levels.

Live plants will improve the air-quality of the space it occupies by absorbing the carbon dioxide and producing fresh oxygen. Plants will also transpire through their leaves, which creates a more humid environment in the space. Actively combating the problem of dry air, which is a big issue, especially in air-conditioned homes.

Not many people are aware of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). VOCs are in paint, domestic cleaning products, some carpets and are known to cause extreme health issues to those that occupy the home. Plants absorb those VOCs, inevitably improving the occupant’s physical health.

They are also known to help relieve stress, which largely contributes to mental disorders and cardiovascular diseases. Not surprisingly, biophilic design results in occupants feeling happier and healthier.
