27 Humanspaces.com A compendium of biophilic research

28 Consider “whole human needs” in learning spaces and offices. Create active and recuperative spaces. Maximise natural light or circadian lighting systems. Improve your view -add greenery and nature where possible. Value exterior space to encourage a connection with nature. Specify natural materials & textures in new surfaces and finishes. Acoustics matter – measure acoustic absorption levels. Biophilic spaces can keep students engaged in education. Reduced staff absenteeism and productivity staff engaged.
