Takumi Design recognizes the need, now more than ever, for people to reconnect with their natural surroundings. It is this belief which has allowed Takumi Design to become the first landscaping architecture company to truly pioneer architectural Biophilic Design integration. Biophilic design is based on the theory of “Biophilia” which states that a person's biological health and well-being has a direction correlation to their relationship with nature. This theory can be further expanded and extrapolated to mean, the reason many people experience stress and depression in daily life, is due to the artificial buildings and structures we live in today that do not satisfy our most basic physiological and psychological needs.
A strong belief in biophilic design integration is a driving force for many projects here at Takumi Design. Incorporating contemporary biophilic design with our architectural projects helps to fuse and “blur the lines” between man-made structures and the natural environment. Several projects we have executed involved a combination of windows, daylight, fresh air, plants and green spaces to provide clients with a feeling of “oneness within the natural world.” Not only does architecture infused with biophilic design help to re-connect oneself with the natural environment, it provides various health benefits as well. Some of these benefits include reduced stress levels, decreased anxiety, heightened sensory perception, enhanced creativity and positive well-being - just to name a few.
