Interior design for health and wellbeing

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.

What an architect can do for you

Architecture is an ancient profession, but the role of architect has constantly changed and evolved. It is surprising how many people today are unaware of the full range of an architect’s services. Giving practical examples, Sarah Khan will demonstrate both when an architect’s input is helpful, and what the reasons are for employing an architect. Referring to recent projects, she will illustrate what benefits an architect can bring to your home. She will also explain the practicalities of doing work to you house and how an architect can help with challenges, ranging from creative design solutions to applying for planning/ listed building/ building control consents as well as managing construction on site.
