Biophilic Design: Incorporate Nature Into Your Home


| 4/25/2018 10:38:00 AM


As a human species, we’ve evolved a lot. Our modern way of life dictates certain things and because of this, we must find the ways to fully adapt. We are tied to the living world around us, and all of us can benefit quite significantly from nature. That’s where biophilic design comes to play.

Biophilia means love of nature. It represents the attraction people feel towards natural processes and nature itself. Biophilia is perfectly natural and it comes from our ancestral connection to nature as the only way of survival. The term was popularized during the 1980’s when over-urbanization started to take hold. As there is a need to stay connected to nature, biophilic design became somewhat necessary for our well-being as a species.

We did a bit of researching and we’ve come up with this short guide through biophilic design. We wanted to help point you in the right direction when it comes to applications of biophilic design. So, without further ado, let’s get straight to it.

How Relevant Biophilic Design Really Is?

Quite a lot of experts agree that stress-related illnesses and disorders are on the rise. There are a lot of studies that show a correlation between distancing ourselves from nature and elevation of stress levels. When you stop to think about it, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Exposure to so much technology, daily routines, workplaces, and even the way we spend our free time all separate us from nature, which can result in quite a lot of stress.



Using biophilic elements in your immediate surroundings can have a positive effect on you. With natural elements surrounding you, your blood pressure drops, heart rate is reduced, as well as stress and anxiety levels. On the other hand, your overall productivity and motivation are elevated. Your creativity and cognitive thinking are also on the rise, so we can agree that all these factors make biophilic design quite important in a modern environment.
