What is biophilic design?

Biophilic design is the incorporation of nature and natural elements into the ‘built’ environment. You’ve probably already felt the benefits of it without even realising. Today it can be found anywhere from offices and hotels to the interior design and external landscaping of people’s homes or public spaces. We work with businesses, architects and interior designers across the UK to bring biophilic benefits to the inhabitants of their buildings.

Biophilic Design using Plants

Biophilic design includes the use of natural light, finishes, colours, views, and even air quality and acoustics. But plants offer one of the quickest, easiest and most affordable ways to access the major benefits of biophilic design. Even the most subtle use of plants can have very positive effects on people’s wellness.
