Biophilic design brings positive experiences of nature into the built environment — whether in a domestic, work, leisure, healthcare, education or retail setting. Written by proponents, who are also leading expert practitioners, this book is the first design guide to biophilia for architects and interior designers.
By raising awareness of biophilic design as a strategy to support psychological and physiological wellbeing, Nature Inside illustrates how it can be implemented, across a range of international case studies. It offers a plethora of practical insight and real-world solutions for all designers.
Starting with the principles and processes of biophilic design in practice, it showcases a variety of interior spaces — residential, retail, workplace, hospitality, education, healthcare and manufacturing. The final chapter looks ‘outside the walls’, by providing a case study at the campus and city scale, concluding with an essential practical toolkit.
Featured projects include:
• The London home of Kelly Hoppen MBE
• Seesaw Coffee, Beijing, by nota architects
• The Assemblage, New York, by Meyer Davis Studio
• Central Library, Calgary, Canada, by Snøhetta
• Bank of America Tower, New York, by COOKFOX
• TRi Restaurant, Hong Kong, by IBUKU
