Introduction

It was Winston Churchill who said, “We shape our buildings, thereafter, our buildings shape us.” Research over the years has shown us that buildings have a direct effect on our physical & mental wellbeing. This is particularly significant, as we’re known to spend 90% of our lives within interior environments. We’re become increasingly aware of factors & lifestyles that can impact our health, but what part do interior environments play in enhancing or being detrimental to our wellbeing? If we want everyone in our building to be healthy, what design decisions need to be considered? Anna Whitehead discusses the principles, strategies & materials to consider when designing interior environments for our health & wellbeing.
