The ‘biophilia hypothesis’ is described by American Biologist Edward Osborne Wilson as “The urge to affiliate with other forms of life”. That urge has driven the rise in biophilic design within the workplace which has had a profound effect on employee wellbeing.
A truly biophilic office space goes way beyond a few plants scattered around an open window; it’s about focussing the design around elements of the natural world which improve human health and productivity. This whitepaper will delve into the world of biophilic design and establish what the key principals are and how they can be applied to real life office design, as well as analysing its effect on employee wellbeing and productivity.
