The benefits of biophilic design
There are many short-term and long-term benefits to incorporating biophilic design within communities. From a short-term benefits perspective, it creates an immediate connection between people and nature, both of which have been shown to improve the physical and mental health of individuals. It also provides a space for the local wildlife to coexist peacefully with residents.
When it comes to long-term benefits, the implementation of biophilic design will assist in reducing the carbon offset of a community. With the creation of “urban forests” and our #OneMillionTrees initiatives, we are actively setting a foundation for sustainable communities for future generations.
“It is satisfying when you see that more people are concerned with the uniqueness of plants or any of the natural elements and seeing the awareness increasing and they understand how you are involved in protecting the earth and the natural elements,” said Khariza.
