More than ever before, employers and employees are focusing on wellness – and how our built environments contribute to wellness. Sustainable design and construction practices are now embedded in our approach to construction, ensuring that we reduce our environmental footprint. But it’s vital to consider how spending time indoors impacts human health as well. Even with work from home trends, most of us spend more time at work than anywhere else.
This article from Work Design Magazine discusses how the ten core concepts of the WELL standard affect the human experience.
At Image 4, human experience is core to what we do. Our experience design experts work closely with architects, interior designers, and clients to ensure that designs enhance how people experience spaces, considering many of the elements of WELL:
Deliberate use of colors, textures, and lighting contribute greatly to how people feel within a space. Image 4’s design team understands how designs on a screen translate into the physical space.
Movement & Community
How people move through space and the ability to easily find what they need greatly impacts the overall user experience. Effective wayfinding, signage, use of color, other design elements, and visual focal points all help people move trough the space.
Acoustics are affected by more than just architectural materials. Brand elements and graphics can be created using materials that manage and reduce noise, as well as be integrated into acoustical systems, making your design both beautiful and functional.
