Physical wellness, comfort and mental wellbeing are important factor in designing a built-form. We often neglect nature in process of design. Nature has no substitute. So, it is very important to consider while designing a building. Humans have evolved their behavioural mechanism & problem solving tactics responding to the stimulus from the surrounding spaces. Architecture, here, has an infinite power to dictate the character and stimuli generation of a space. This stimulus to be positively conceived and delivered physically, psychologically and intellectually to the surroundings, is the core of the Biophilic Hypothesis. This paper discusses the impact of biophilic design on human health and well-being and presents a unified framework for its application in the design of biophilic spaces.
