biophilic edit

Biophilic Edit collects inspirations from my design research and reads: biophilic projects, design details and ideas to bring the spaces we design closer to the natural world.

Biophilic Edit is issued monthly as part of anooi newsletter – below are a few extracts from previous issues:




01

Informal and oversized branches foraged locally are one of the easiest and most effective ways to add interest to plain surfaces, bring nature indoors, and set a genuine connection with the surroundings.


02

Branches and trees reflect on a glazed façade and a plain wall, projecting indoors the subtle movements, changes, and instances of life happening outdoors.

01

A stone wall that runs across both the interior and the outdoor, giving a sense of continuity and inviting a fluid use of space.


02

A rainwater collection system doubling as a dynamic water feature that populates according to the weather, connecting the space to nature’s changing conditions.

01

Climbing vine: one of the easiest ways to rewild a plain wall, enriching it with texture and life.


02

A tall dwarf wall in a richly textured finish with plants draping from the top: a brilliant partitioning idea to zone the space while keeping it somehow open and fluid.

01

A restaurant where indoor and outdoor communicate in a mix of atmospheres and unique charm is given by the identity of the place (the interior used to be a church).


02

Curved forms, natural materials, and laid-back landscapes make this space uniquely welcoming and calming.
