Creating a pleasant and productive working environment is at the heart of contemporary workspace design. A work environment’s physical space is hugely impactful on the well-being of the employees and necessitates mindful design to enhance satisfaction.
As a leader in contemporary workspace design, Gray Puksand creates sustainable projects featuring biophilic design principles, involving the integration of nature into a space to enhance human connection to the environment.
The presence of plants is proven to have positive effects on employees. Workspaces that incorporate high levels of natural materials report a 15% higher wellbeing score and 6% higher productivity score compared to offices that feature little to no natural materials. Creativity, concentration, and critical thinking can also be enhanced through biophilic design. Furthermore, interactions with plants can reduce employee’s levels of stress and anxiety, with higher levels of stress relief strongly linked to a greater presence of nature in the workplace.
