Well-being for the individual, for each other, and for nature.
We aspire to design spaces that are not only beautiful but also promote well-being and leave a lasting impression. Collaborating with our clients, we aim for meaning in every design we bring to life.
Well-being is not a secondary consideration for us but a core value that always takes precedence in our design process. How we achieve that? That's detailed below.
User Centered Design
Involving users provides insight into their needs, creates support for changes, and brings stakeholders together. A design that considers both the aesthetic and psychological needs of people reduces stress and facilitates the achievement of goals for users. This leads to the desired behavior in the space. We utilize interactive workshops with users, customer journey planning, and other tools to gather all the necessary input from the user.
Many of us barely realize how everyday spaces impact our well-being. Neuro-architecture explores how spaces can influence our mood, well-being, and even our immune system. It can be employed to create productive offices, healing hospitals and practices, inspiring schools, hospitality, and retail spaces.
Biophilic design is one of the tools we use for this purpose. Research indicates that natural elements have a calming effect, reduce blood pressure, and slow the heart rate. Consider elements such as plants, rounded shapes, patterns inspired by nature, and colors derived from the natural world.
Well-being extends beyond the individual; it encompasses the whole. This means well-being for oneself, for others, and for the planet. We believe that real change begins when the foundation of the system changes. Therefore, we collaborate with our clients to establish sustainability ambitions at the outset of each project. We identify factors with the greatest impact and determine how far we can go within time and budget constraints. True impact arises when the foundation is solid. From there, we examine how each component contributes to the larger whole and the overarching ambition.
