Biophilic Design – The New Standard?

Original Design:

 

Biophilic Design:

With so much focus on minimalism in interior design these days, a refreshing movement toward ‘biophilic design’ is gaining popularity every day.

Many architects and clients alike seem to be over-appreciating the concept of white space, clean lines and beauty in nothingness.  And while it is hard not to appreciate these new-aged, semi-futuristic interior spaces, it is also easy to lose sight of a core architectural design concept: blurring the lines between inside and out.

Some may think that large glass curtain-walls with views to every direction on a compass get the job done, but why not take it one step further?  Bring the environment outside into your interior space so you can see, hear, smell, and touch nature while indoors.

For a more in-depth look at ‘biophilic design,’ take a look at the links below.

Boston Properties Makes Atlantic Wharf Even Greener.

Boston Properties’ Atlantic Wharf, a building that was dubbed ‘Boston’s first green skyscraper,’  has gotten even greener this past week.  The LEED Platinum certified building contracted Cityscapes, in coordination with Green Living Technologies, to give their main lobby quite the facelift.  Images above include the 7 living walls that reach up to 17 feet high.  Also new planters now surround the elegant fountains residing at the atrium’s center.

Featured in the images is Cityscapes’ owner Jan Goodman with Leo Baez, Tony Lobo, Adam Nagle and Barrett Cooke of Boston Properties.
