After reading this blog title I’m sure you are wondering, what exactly is Biophilic Design?
So, let’s get straight to it, Biophilic Design is a way to connect people and nature within built environments and communities. This includes living plants, water, daylight, and more.
Below are some ways incorporating Biophilic Design can impact your workplace for the better:
1. This type of design helps create a beautiful looking work environment which in turn boosts employee’s overall moral and retention
People love working in beautiful places. According to a study in the National Library of Medicine, “Burchett, et al. revealed that just one plant within the workspace can significantly enhance staff morale and simultaneously promote well-being and improve performance.”
2. It helps lower overall stress in the office
As humans, we have a natural desire to connect with nature, and when there isn’t a sign of natural sunlight, plants, or water in sight it’s a bit unsettling. Adding those natural elements can help us feel more at ease and breeds creativity in the workplace.
3. Helps improve cognitive function
4. Is a great way to show your employees that you care about their wellbeing
