Americans spend about 90 percent of their time inside. As a result, building professionals are rethinking how people design, use and occupy buildings.
Biophilic design is increasingly used to boost occupant well-being through connection to nature and the use of natural elements like daylight, plants, water and exposed wood. These elements have been attributed to positive outcomes in humans—from reducing stress to boosting productivity.
Today, this emerging trend is increasingly a market expectation, with tenants seeking sustainable, functional and aesthetically pleasing features throughout their offices, homes, retail and hospitality spaces.
Published jointly with our partners at Think Wood, this engaging and stunning LookBook considers the role of wood in the context of biophilic design principles.
