White Paper: Biophilic Design in Senior Living
Perkins Eastman recently released their latest white paper that highlights the social aspects of design in relation to sustainability in the senior living market. “Biophilic Design: An Alternative Perspective for Sustainable Design in Senior Living,” examines biophilic design, its impacts on the health and well-being of senior residents and includes several case study projects that have put biophilic design into practice.
The authors note that this white paper, “…presents knowledge of how the brain and body respond to their environment and how the application of this knowledge, specifically in designing Senior Living environments, helps demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, and simultaneously, a commitment to enhancing the resident experience by measurably improving resident health, well-being and performance.”
