Abstract

Biophilic design can transform our urban environments, enhance human connections with buildings and improve health and wellbeing. Incorporating biophilic principles in buildings can enhance employee creativity and productivity, increase sales in retail environments, improve student academic performance and shorten patient recovery times. There are, however, a number of frameworks for integrating biophilic design which can make it challenging for businesses to recognise both the importance and benefits to their building design. To fully embed biophilic design would require a shift in approach towards value. Future nature-based and human-oriented design methodologies enforced by legislative changes are therefore recommended.
