Interiors Director Jon Grant writes about the transformative power of biophilic design

Chapman Taylor’s Interiors Director Jon Grant has written an Insight paper discussing the importance of biophilic design and the ways in which it can be incorporated into buildings of all types.

Biophilic design involves the creation of a built environment which increases physical wellbeing and mental contentment among the users of that environment through the use of plants, natural materials, natural light and ventilation or a simulation of these.

Sensory contact with natural features reduces stress and increases happiness and productivity. By introducing natural elements into the design of the built environment, human beings are reconnected, at least in part, with the natural world in which we evolved for millions of years – helping to mitigate some of the problems caused by living in a post-industrial

Chapman Taylor is an advocate of biophilic design, using it in our architectural and interior design schemes across a number of sectors from workplaces and retail areas to hotel and residential buildings. We believe that the physical and mental wellbeing of the end-users should be paramount in any building design scheme, and we strive to ensure that we use every tool at our disposal as designers, including the use of biophilic principles, to achieve that end.
