5 Ways To Introduce Biophilia Into Your Office Interior Design

5 Ways To Introduce Biophilia Into Your Office Interior Design

In order to fully understand the use of Biophilic elements, you have to first understand what Biophilia actually is. Biophilia is the study and utilization of nature in everyday human life through architecture and interior design. ‘Nature’ here includes plants, natural light and other organic elements that introduce a refreshing vibe in man-made settings. Even a small view that looks outside on a small patch of green can count as a Biophilic element if you can work the design right.

Anyway, Biophilia is a concept that has been slowly gaining credibility with professionals. Many large-scale commercial companies have already started introducing natural elements in their office interior design in Singapore. Google, Facebook and even Autodesk are great case studies of this concept. So if you’re looking for ways to introduce Biophila in your office, then here are 5 ways you can do so.

The Hydroponic Wall

Hydroponic Wall

Whether it’s behind a reception desk or in a long indoor corridor, we’ve all seen that ubiquitous ‘green’ wall around many indoor spaces. It’s actually a hydroponic indoor vertical garden, and it’s the most beloved form of Biophilia found in modern Singapore interior design. It has the ability to completely transform the face of any interior design. You can set one up in an office to evoke a refreshing, natural ambience for your employees.

Large Window Portals

Nothing can boost up energy levels and productivity quite like natural light. This is why one of the foremost and most straightforward introductions of Biophilic elements in an office interior design is the use of large window portals that let in an ample amount of sunlight. The natural light that filters inside can do wonders to improve your employee productivity in a natural way.

Indoor Patios

Indoor Patio

If your office is located in an otherwise enclosed space with little to no natural ventilation, then designing indoor patios is the way to go. If you’re worried about additional costs of indoor plant maintenance, then fear not. This is exactly what the concept of Zen Gardens is there for. You can simply use dried plant arrangements, ornamental grasses, several kinds of rockery and pebble spills to introduce a small element of Biophilia in your office interior designs.

Green Terraces

Green Terrace

If your office resides on one of the top floors of a high rise building, then you can easily incorporate a bit of Biophilia in your interior-scape with the help of green terraces. It’s a new concept that evokes a refreshingly natural vibe in otherwise man-made settings. Just imagine having a great view of the city-scape with a foreground of a beautiful, green framing of plant life.

Water Bodies

Water bodies in the office

Did you know that listening to the sound of water can reduce a lot of stress? Introducing water bodies in a typical office interior design may seem a little out of context, but it definitely works. It’s a refreshing change that allows the employees much more room to relax in a subtle, psychological way. A great example of this is using an aquarium as part of your interior design.
