Our Visual Connection With Nature

Our Visual Connection With Nature

After a year of our lives spent in and out of confinement, now that Spring has arrived, we all want to be outside. Biophilic design, is the use direct or indirect connectivity to Nature inside our homes, is really having a moment. Its fundamental goal is to promote physical and mental health, fitness and wellbeing.


 
Biophilic design is a concept rooted in human’s innate attraction to nature and natural processes, suggesting that this connection is a part of our genetic makeup built up over hundreds of thousands of years living in an agrarian society. 

We can’t all convert our abodes into the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, but there are still many ways you can include your natural need to connect to nature in your home design.
