At Light House, we have seen firsthand great value in the design principles of active, accessible, and biophilic design. These design frameworks compliment conventional design frameworks by putting aspects of health and wellness alongside traditional design. All projects can benefit from the lens of health & wellness.

Biophilic Design

Humans have an inherent love of nature and certain evolved preferences for what makes a space habitable. Being in and around nature can calms our minds, brings us a sense of awe, inspires curiosity and compels us to explore, gives us a sense of security, is exhilarating and even a bit of danger. Biophilic design allows us to look at the patterns of nature and design human-nature spaces, to enhance health, learning, productivity, and to tell a unique story of place and time.
