Connecting building occupants more closely to nature: Biophilic design

In the enchanting world of Biophilic Design, where nature effortlessly intertwines with urban living spaces, I, a proud plant nerd, have explored the transformative journey of turning my home into a thriving urban jungle. Let's dive into the magic of Biophilic Design, with a special focus on cultivating vibrant urban jungles.

Biophilic Design celebrates our intrinsic connection to the natural world. For plant nerds like me, this connection goes beyond aesthetics—it's a profound appreciation for the companionship of indoor plants. These green allies, more than mere decor, breathe life into our living spaces, offering a daily reminder of nature's beauty and vitality.

Every corner becomes an opportunity to introduce a new leafy companion within our homes, creating a dynamic landscape. The challenge is to curate a diverse collection of plant species, combining textures and colours to emulate the vibrancy of a tropical forest in the heart of the city.

While the visual appeal of indoor plants is undeniable, their impact on well-being goes beyond aesthetics. Studies consistently show that Biophilic Design reduces stress and enhances overall happiness, and as we typically spend approximately 90% of our time indoors this is important to our lives. As plant nerds, we experience the joy of nurturing our green friends, creating an environment that not only looks good but also fosters a sense of calm and connection.

For plant nerds, urban jungles provide the perfect canvas to indulge in favourite activities – plant parenting and propagation. Witnessing a tiny cutting evolve into a thriving plant is a source of unparalleled satisfaction. Urban jungles become living laboratories, showcasing the growth and evolution of our plant family, creating a dynamic and ever-changing landscape.
