Health and Wellbeing

The Building Research Establishment (BRE) is running a long-term trial investigating the impact of biophilic interventions into the workplace. This will involve environmental and ergonomic designs that are intended to provide a healthful working space for the BRE staff in a refurbished floor of a 1980s building on the BRE campus.

The Light Review is a Dissemination Partner for The Biophilic Office and will be posting regular articles on the progress of the trial.

BIOPHILIA (n): (according to a theory of the biologist E. O. Wilson) an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world.

‘Biophilic Design uses this ideas as principles to create a human- centred approach that, when applied, improves many of the spaces that we live and work in today, with numerous benefits to our health and well-being’ (Oliver Heath)
