Wellness and Biophilic Design in the New Normal
The "New Normal" is refocusing our attention on our interiors.
No other time in history has the world collectively remained inside their homes and disconnected with personal contact the other people and nature than now.
Human kind has been on a path for the past 100 years. Moving to a lifestyle that includes living indoors 90% of the time.
The "New Normal" is now a more concentrated form of indoor living blurring the lines of personal, professional, and recreational lives: the "Stay at Home Lifestyle."
The mental restorative quality (or lack thereof) of our interiors is amplified as we are disconnected from other humans and our ability to get out in nature. If your home is lacking, you can feel it with increased stress levels. The inefficiencies from our interiors for the present day is right before our eyes. Addressing our health and the health of our homes is the core of Wellness and Biophilic Design.
