The Effect of Architecture on the Brain

Have you ever considered the effect architecture may have on your feelings, emotional responses, and overall well being? You may think that architecture is simply something beautiful to admire but science has proven that it can have a significant impact on your emotional well-being.

  • Natural light- Buildings that feature plenty of windows are excellent environments for learning and productivity. The abundance of natural light is often inspiring and encouraging to students and employees that are hard at work.
  • Expansive rooms- Large rooms with soaring ceilings are known to promote creative thinking. Consider raising the ceiling height in your child's playroom to encourage active and creative play.
  • Organic elements- Finding innovative ways to incorporate organic elements into your home's architecture may calm you down and reduce stress levels. Strategically placing windows with a view of the garden or using a vertical wall for climbing flowers in your exterior living space are both great ways to add organic elements to your home.
