Biophilic Design is the intentional incorporation and mimicking of natural patterns which feel good to people. It comes as no surprise that we feel better out in nature; what you might not know is that research has shown that incorporating these patterns in the built environment actually helps people heal faster, be more productive at work, and learn better at school. There are a full range of strategies that we apply to bring the benefits of nature to your property. Here are some:
Presence of water: One of the strongest beneficial patterns is the presence of clean, flowing water.
Natural Shapes: People tend to respond better to curves and other natural shapes in landscape designs as opposed to straight lines and right angles.
Natural Materials: Wherever possible, we prefer using natural stone and wood over plastic, metal or concrete.
Living Walls and Roofs: Sometimes the best place for plants is not on the ground! Living walls and roofs add rich natural presence in places we are not used to having nature.
