The Biophilic Office is a long-term research and demonstration project from BRE and Oliver Heath Design and supported by plants@work and our members: Ambius and Biotecture. 
The biophilic design acknowledges that we are genetically connected to nature and that a human-centred approach can improve many of the spaces where we live and work, with numerous benefits to our health and wellbeing and efficiency. The scientific evidence for the positive influence of biophilic design, on the health and wellbeing of building occupants is substantial and growing. In an office environment, this is shown as quantified improvements in productivity, wellness and a reduction in days absent due to illness.
"This research offers us a great opportunity to contribute to the understanding of the impact of the office environment on the health and wellbeing of our colleagues. The link between people’s wellbeing and our wider business culture is one we are very keen to understand and benefit from."
Kirsten Lord, Director of HR at BR
