This fall, NMR Architects Dave And Mel enhanced the Redding office with even more biophilic design elements. Biophilic design focuses on connecting individuals with nature in the built environment and can be achieved through natural light, natural materials, plant life, living green walls etc.
Studies show that buildings that connect people with nature promote improved health and overall well-being. Biophilic design has even been known to reduce stress, enhance creativity and clarity of thought and improve our well-being. Patients heal faster in hospitals, children test higher in schools, employee productivity soars in offices, families thrive and neighbors are known in communities intentionally designed to integrate a connection with nature.
Many thanks to Dave and Mel for connecting us with nature in the office!
