Find happiness within your workspace with Biophilic design

Remote and hybrid working – two terms we are extremely well acquainted with now. As flexible working continues across the country between the office and home, many people have witnessed the benefits that interchanging work environments can have on both productivity and employee wellbeing. But where does design come in? According to a recent article by Training Journal*, it’s been found that a poorly designed office can negatively affect staff members’ happiness. So, whilst everyone shifts from the commute to the work-from-home desk, it’s wise to consider the go-to design functions to help enhance each workspace. A popular interior design choice that is associated with positive spaces is Biophilic design. Biophilia is defined as an instinct to connect with nature and all living things, which plays a big part in Biophilic design functions. The connection to nature has been found to support mental health and cognitive functions, whilst reducing stress and improving creativity. Not only that, but the sustainable aspects of Biophilic design are innovating buildings and homes. Characterised by natural flora amongst airy, bright spaces, these design schemes are all ways to improve health and wellbeing within a working space. The particular combination of greenery and natural timber - in the form of a desk or meeting table, can provide an inviting space that acts as the ultimate stress reliever, whilst also improving air quality and respiratory health. Atkinson & Kirby's trend, 'Zen Living', encapsulates this notion of choosing designs that benefit your happiness and wellbeing, as well as offering an easy way to introduce more sustainable products to your home or workspace.  By investing in quality materials with a long lifespan such as Atkinson & Kirby's environmentally certified low maintenance wood flooring, people can incorporate sleek designs into their workspaces that are also self sustaining. To achieve this trend, Wyvis Smoked Oak’s natural tones are perfect for adding a timeless feel that will compliment any décor in years to come. Likewise, Chiswick Oak can create a light, spacious workspace, whether that be at home or the office. Ness Smoked Oak and its beautifully aged look also complements an earthy colour palette and added greenery, as demonstrated at Whitworth Locke, Manchester.

Planet Mark Business Certification

Archwood Group are proud to announce that we have partnered with Planet Mark as part of our sustainability commitments and the United Nations Race to Zero campaign. As a business, it is critical that we measure our own impact on the environment.  Planet Mark will support us with measuring and validating our carbon footprint, creating a clear picture of all our environmental impacts.  This will allow us to identify ways to take rigorous and immediate action to halve our carbon footprint by 2030 and achieve Net Zero by no later than 2050. After many months of data collation and external verification we are proud to announce that we've achieved the Planet Mark Year 1 Business Certification.  This is an incredible achievement involving the entire business. The Planet Mark Business Certification is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for businesses reporting its carbon footprint and demonstrating continuous progress, encouraging action and building an empowered community of like-minded individuals. Through Planet Mark we have protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to half deforestation.  In addition, through our commitment to Planet Mark we are also helping the Eden Project - an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. We want to continue to do our part in having a positive impact on the planet and society.  Each and every one of us plays an important role in our sustainablity journey. We look forward to sharing our sustainability achievements over the coming months and encourage you to get in touch if you have any questions, suggestions or would like to get involved.
