Our buildings can shape our habits, help balance our sleep-wake cycle, drive us toward healthy and unhealthy choices, and passively influence our health through the quality of our surroundings.
Biophilia and wellness-related technology are becoming big business in workspaces, factories, hotels, prisons and other commercial environments. Now the technology is moving fast and furious into the residential sector.
Wellness by Design is a concept that seeks to introduce, encourage, and explore new and upcoming technology trends as they relate to wellness in design & build solutions, especially in the residential sector. We focus on eight primary fields as part of this concept:
• Air Quality
• Water Quality and Sustainability
• Light and the Circadian Rhythm
• Mindfulness & Biophilia
• Materials; including building materials, furniture, and home-accessories
• Sound Scaping & Insulation
• Gardening - Fresh Nutrition
• The Disconnected Home – Coming Off the Grid
We also cover a bonus field; we call it The Connected Home. We’re sure that the irony with the last field being The Disconnected Home didn’t go unnoticed and we will explain that in due time.
In addition, we believe that wellness doesn’t stop inside the four walls of a house or a building. Therefore, in our blog we will also include some related tidbits from other fields such as nutrition, fitness and spirituality. Hope you’ll enjoy coming along with us on this journey as we explore new possibilities in Home Design.
