Biophilic Design
SDE4 uses biophilic design principles to establish and nurture a relationship with its sorroundings through visual and physical connections with natural elements.
Nature In Place
SDE4 adresses the 'presence of nature within the building' through its landscaping elements at level six, open views to the landscape and water features that are activate when it rains.
Nature of Place
SDE4 incorporates this virtue thorugh its open design, offering visual connections with sorroudings while providing physical shelter from natural elements.
Materiality
SDE4’s use of raw concrete, timber fixtures and fitting, and floor patterns create an esoteric yet comprehensible analogue to nature and biophilia.
Biophilic Profiling
The analytical tool allows designers to assess the biophilic profile of a building using a three dimensional biophilic green map.
