Episode 33: Biophilia: Living-conscious design in hospitality spaces
On the podcast today we’re entering the world of biophilia – a powerful human-centric design philosophy that’s making inroads to the mainstream and revolutionising hospitality spaces worldwide.
To help us get to grips with the basics of biophilia and understand the health promoting benefits of reconnecting with nature, we’re speaking with Oliver Heath
, one of the world’s leading thinkers in biophilic design.
We’ll also hear from Shiyun Qian, Founder of Nota Architects
in China, and Tim Schroeder, Founder of London-based specialty café group Hagen
, to further see how these design principles can be applied to hospitality spaces and discover the business benefits of biophilia in café operations.
To dive deeper into Oliver Heath’s work, you can read his white paper ‘Creating Positive Spaces using Biophilic Design’ here
. For ideas on how to incorporate biophilic design into the home, Oliver has also authored the book ‘Design A Healthy Home’
which can be purchased from all major retailers.
