Well-being design transcends all sectors of the market. The pandemic was the great equalizer and left none untouched. The spaces of our future, anchored in the conception of well-being, promote a healthy environment with biophilia (connecting architecture and nature), the integration of interior-exterior space and gently control lighting, materiality, air and sound. This design approach can be applied to all industries – schools, healthcare, business, entertainment, and hospitality. These spaces would be based on well-being and would apply:

  • Agile – friendly, flexible and adaptable furniture and spaces to adapt to the needs of users and the community.
  • Limits – the use of screens, partitions or panels to create boundaries, foster a sense of community and identify spaces.
  • Nature – use of greenery and connection to nature outdoors, promoting indoor-outdoor connections and increasing the performance of outdoor spaces.
  • Environment – create a sanctuary for people to work / play / learn.
  • Durability – a wellness design approach is a sustainable holistic approach with the use of sustainable materials, lighting and HVAC methodology to create healthy built environments.
