The Biophilic Office Project

There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that, by incorporating biophilic design into our built environments, we can increase our health and wellbeing. Biophilic design acknowledges that we are instinctively connected to nature and that, through exploring this connection within the spaces that we live, relax and work in, we can positively influence our physical and psychological health. Oliver Heath, Director of Oliver Heath Designs, knows his stuff.

Mix Design Collective Experience: Recharge

With the importance of sleep never more discussed we look at how the use of technology, emotive decoration and soft fabrics will contribute to the sanctuary that will be the bedroom of the future.

KKA Interiors
Liverpool

KKA will be designing the RECHARGE experience, focusing on how the use of sustainable, emotive decoration and soft fabrics will contribute to the bedroom of the future. 

KKA Interiors is an internationally noted and award-winning practice, whose recent work includes Hilton Garden Inn Hotel at Silverstone Racetrack and the LFC Anfield Megastore, as well as luxury student accommodation Tru Student and Boho – featuring slides, swing seating and reclaimed caravan music rooms. 

What can we expect from your RECHARGE experience?
‘Our design for Mix Design Collective explores sustainability and its importance on a commercial scale. We aspire to reinvent the traditional hotel room concept and create an oasis where one can find themselves exposed to experiences that allow recharging and resurgence of creative potential.

‘We welcomed the opportunity to challenge our creative thinking through our involvement with Mix Design Collective. This exciting venture has enabled us to develop and push our boundaries through an experimental platform.’

What do you see as the current trends are in hospitality design?
‘Material palettes, including raw terrazzo and soft pastel shades, offset with intricate metalwork, are evident in the hospitality sector. However, user experience has become the main priority, including personality and connectivity through design. In 2020, spaces will become more tactile and immersive, with more emphasis on sustainability and social consciousness.’

There’s been a real emphasis on using hotels for community integration – ie. the front of the hotel becomes a coworking space. Do you think this is the way things are heading?
‘Yes, completely – and not only in the hospitality sector. We are currently exploring this important subject from a sociological point of view with Oxford Brookes University. People’s approach to work and life has changed over recent years, which is reflected in this shift.’
