Health & wellbeing
Recent learnings from the principles of biophilic design indicate humans’ desire to connect with their natural environment. Extensive research has taken place over the past 30 years showing the positive health and wellbeing impacts of creating offices and other spaces using natural materials.
Sustainable office buildings aim to balance the needs of today and those of future generations; they are built without depleting natural resources and without other harmful environmental and social impacts. Today, sustainable buildings mostly aim at reducing carbon emissions, and at providing healthy and comfortable conditions for users, not only during the use phase, but also in the materials, construction and after use phase.
