Biophilic Architecture and Design Explained

What exactly is biophilic design? It’s a creative approach that strives to incorporate elements of the natural world into the built environment, fostering a relationship between nature and human spaces. Through the strategic use of natural materials, embracing the flow of natural light, and mimicking natural forms and patterns, biophilic design creates an atmosphere that reduces stress, enhances creativity, and improves overall well-being.

It is the art and science of designing spaces that speak to our inherent need to connect with nature, manifesting in living spaces that look beautiful and cater to our biological affinity towards life and life-like processes.

Our Commitment to Biophilic Design Principles

For us, biophilic design is more than an aesthetic choice; it’s a commitment to well-being through the integration of natural elements. Imagine living walls that not only contribute to air quality but also form a living piece of art, or spaces where the flow of light and space is dictated by the sun’s path. These principles are infused into every corner of the homes we design, creating environments that enhance mental and physical health and draw a profound connection to the living world.

Crafting Spaces that Reflect Natural Harmony

Our architectural design process is rooted in understanding the principles of biophilic design and its impact on daily life. We work collaboratively, ensuring that the space we create embodies your desires and natural harmony. With an emphasis on incorporating nature into every aspect of design, we create homes that work for you and the environment.


We create legacy houses that bring you joy.

Glass Studio: A 1970’s ranch house designed by Japanese architect, Yashimura Junyo, included a detached studio.  Dark, uninviting, and not capturing the view of a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, the frame studio was removed.  The new studio is built on top of the existing foundation and connected to the main house and the surrounding landscape, melding panoramic waterside views with eco-conscious design. The new fireplace is a ruinous form that flows inside to outside between two spectacular Japanese red maple trees. The steel frame supports a floating fir rafter, purlin, and planked ceiling.  The architectural goal of the room is to capture the view of the intimate mature garden, the intermediate view of the water, and the long distant view of the horizon. A testament to biophilic architectural design capabilities.
