Studies have shown that incorporating nature into the built environment can positively impact occupants’ physical and mental well-being. HLW and our in-house sustainability team, BEYOND, champion biophilic design principles to create healthy and inspiring workspaces.

How can nature be integrated into your workspace?

Natural light and ventilation: Maximizing natural light exposure and providing access to fresh air improves mood, cognitive function, and sleep quality.
