Biophilic design is a concept used within the building industry to increase occupant connectivity to the natural environment. Vertical live gardens in offices not only enhance the aesthetics of a room but improve the negative psychological effects of the office by softening the environment . A sense of calm is created by the use of natural greenery which increases productivity and overall psychological wellbeing.
Open plan offices are often noisy places. Noise is often disruptive and distracting which results in lower productivity. The plants in a vertical garden naturally absorb, deflect and reflect sound allowing for a more comfortable ambient noise level.
Plants naturally filter toxins such as carbon dioxide from the air we breathe. A vertical live garden produces oxygen which reduces the toxins from synthetic materials and dust, creating a cleaner and more invigorating work environment that will lead to better overall health and production.
