Biophilic Design article from 14 Feb 2022

The use of timber in interior spaces can be one of the most direct ways to motivate a 'connection' between people and nature, especially when the timber maintains its most rustic and textured state. Biophilic design seeks to improve the well-being of humans through direct contact with nature and organic forms, avoiding straight lines and 'aseptic' spaces. According to Nikos A. Salingaros and Michael W. Mehaffy, "we seek legibility and meaning in our environment, and we are repelled by environments that don't give us meaning." Thus, the rustic inconsistencies and variable tones of timber pieces can be integrated with indoor plants, living walls, colors, and other raw materials, enhancing the space with adequate ventilation and lighting as well. This kind of biophilic design is not only being used in homes but especially in educational, hospital, and office spaces, thus improving the daily experience of people in their places of learning, healing, and work, reducing stress levels, and promoting general comfort.
