Notes from the Biking Broker: Designed to Feel Connected
Do you ever wish that you were more connected to nature? Or that your home allowed you to be more connected to the environment it is set in? A new design trend called Biophilic Design may be one to consider when building or remodeling your home.
Biophilic Design is based on the principle that connecting a person to nature through design can actually make them feel happier. Amanda Sturgeon, a prominent architect and champion of Biophilic Design states that humans "possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life." Drawing on this need for connection, Biophilic Design uses natural features such as wood, stone, and clay along with natural light and shapes found in nature to create inviting and comfortable spaces.
