PlantWalls by Green Fortune

Green Fortune, out of Stockholm, Sweden, works to increase the biophilic connection using PlantWalls.

These living walls have been popular across the pond for years and are beginning to really take off in the United States.  Check out some of Green Fortune’s work here.

Want your space to stand apart from all the other brand new, stark, minimalist, clean-line renovations that are happening in every office and lobby in the city?

Give Cityscapes a call and let our designers bring the space to life.

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.
