Body & Mind:

Homes should be sanctuaries – dwellings that protect and nourish humans. As such, it’s important that somewhere in yours, be it a kitchen, bedroom, or a reading nook, you carve out spaces where you can feel a great sense of peace and find stillness of mind. The design, layout and appearance of homes can have powerful effects on mental wellbeing and decision making. Our goal is to create homes that support resident’s psychological health. When we think about how a home’s design and operations can support one’s body and mind, we also consider factors such as ensuring suitable good quality sleep and rest, creating spaces that encourage hydration and support a healthy approach and better access to nutrient-rich food, as well as interventions to make it simpler for residents to integrate movement and exercise into their daily lives.
