Design For Wellbeing

We  are reported to be spending 90% of our time indoors and our spaces are increasingly made more and more air tight.  So it's important we are mindful of what we put in those spaces with us as inside air quality can often be many times worse than outside.

I am part the healthy building movement promoting better ways to design and specify spaces for human health and wellbeing. I use the FitWel® and the WELL Building Standard as the basis for a healthy, human-centric interior design specification.  Making interior spaces work for the wellness of the users.

The standards both explore how design, operations and behaviours within spaces can be optimised to advance human health and well-being.  

What does that mean?

When designing a space I look at:  

  • Materials
  • Air quality 
  • Water quality
  • Access to nature
  • Nourishment
  • Healthy lighting design
  • Movement
  • Mental health  
  • Comfort 
  • Community
  • Innovation

To support this I have studied to become a FitWel® Ambassador.
