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.

IVC carpet tiles create botanical feel at the offices of South West Academic Health Science Network

IVC carpet tiles and LVT have been used to create a botanical feel at the Exeter offices of South West Academic Health Science Network

30/09/2019 2 min read

Using the striking parquet Shades design from the Moduleo 55 Expressive LVT collection in the café area and combining it with Disruptive Path and Creative Spark carpet tiles for working and meeting spaces, interior design company, idesign, has created a flooring pathway that flows between different elements of the interior. 

‘We saw the office as a garden and the employees as bees, so we used the flooring to create the sense of an organic passage between areas,’ explained idesign’s Roxan Burley. ‘We grouped green ‘patches’ of Creative Spark to zone areas of the design, gradually dispersing into the organic look of Disruptive Path for the main areas. Then, the random pattern of Shades came into play in the café area for its easy maintenance and hardwearing credentials.’

“We’re great fans of IVC’s hard flooring, so it was a real advantage to be able to use carpet tiles from the same manufacturer too.”

IVC’s Disruptive Path and Creative Spark carpet tiles are designed to coordinate, using the same 100% Colorstrand solution-dyed nylon and EcoFlexTM Statera 70% recycled content backing for universal performance. At South West Academic Health Science Network, the solid green of Creative Spark 611 harmonises with the field tile of Shared Path 924 and the accent tile of Disruptive Path 916. 

‘We’re great fans of IVC’s hard flooring, so it was a real advantage to be able to use carpet tiles from the same manufacturer too. Disruptive Path met the challenge of our design concept and, by installing Shades on self-adhesive Flexpro underlay, it meant we could achieve the right look in a universal height, which meant no need for transition strips between flooring types,’ Roxan concluded.

Working across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and the Isles of Scilly, the South West Academic Health Science Network works to improve the health and patient experience of people in the South West by supporting and accelerating innovation and quality improvement. Moving to new offices in Exeter, the company tasked idesign with a full design and fit-out, including a total of 915 sqm of flooring from IVC.
