What are the elements of biophilic design?Natural light from windows, skylights, clerestory openings; full-spectrum artificial light sources that complement daylight; dynamic light of varying intensity via facades, shades, shutters and apertures.Exterior views. A distant view past a close view gives perspective and a sense of connection to a wider ecosystem.Water sources such as fountains, ponds and water features, that can be seen, heard and touched.Rich sensory stimuli that reference nature; scented plants, plants that change colour seasonally, plants positioned to move in breezeways, open flames, tactile materials.Minimally processed materials that reflect the local ecology; natural fibres such as leather, stone, timber and handmade objects.
