Multi-Room Audio in Biophilic Design
Using the Sound of Nature in Architectural Design
Wellness and biophilia are rapidly growing themes in design circles. Biophilia comes from the Greek word "philia," which means "love of." Translated, biophilia simply means love of life or living things. At its root, it encompasses human’s engrained love of and attachment to nature.
Researchers found that, when asked to picture a place where participants felt calm and relaxed, 90% imagined a natural setting.
Since its inception in 1964, biophilia has progressively become one of the most influential elements in design and architecture, integrating nature into a home’s scheme. When you harvest daylight or incorporate natural elements such as greenery, you’re incorporating biophilic design.
So, what does this have to do with multi-room audio when designing homes in Scottsdale, AZ? Everything.
