By thinking of the word ‘office’ we get a busy picture of people working and the files piled up in a corner. But the word ‘peace’ never comes in our mind. Some places give you a positive vibe and make you feel relaxed or comfortable and these places are generally the ones where you find nature. There is an urge for human beings to be connected with other forms of life and the term is known as: biophilia.
Generally, people who reside and work in the urban areas procure peace and comfort in the lapse of nature. And, no it’s not a fad for them to go out for a vacation in the hills, but the regular indoor life in the city has affected their mental and physical health so much that they crave for an escape. A person starts developing a connection with the nature which soothes him. Ten percent of employee’s efficiency can be recouped with the green in the architectural design. Employees feel less sick and are more energetic when exposed to nature view.
The advantage of greenery goes beyond being productive and beautiful. Plants are an excellent sound barrier and enhances the morale and air quality of a place. The power of nature is not limited to this only, the presence of nature relieve stress, improves health, provides a cool atmosphere and gives a meditative environment all around.
People looking to redesign their office design can strategically place planters, greenery in the corridors or the space connecting one floor to another. But many tech companies or startups do realise the benefits of greenery in office but don’t want the heavy expenditure and maintenance woes. Another thing which you can do to add the green is decorate your people’s desk with small succulent terrariums. So, create a budget friendly solution and reap the benefits of greenery.
Whether you go green with a terrarium, pottery plant, live walls or a simple succulent, going green is sure going to help you work efficiently and breathe purely.
