Biophilia

Research suggests that natural spaces in healthcare settings can be restorative resources for service users, staff and visitors.

Using biophilic design — the strategy of implementing nature into the environment — you can help create a sense of calm and wellbeing.

At Altro we work with you to identify your needs and goals, and create an environment which incorporates elements of nature: soothing colours, meaningful and varying stimuli, pleasant views and a sense of beauty. These elements are proven essential in patients experiencing a positive outcome. We understand HBN 00-01 “General Design guidance for healthcare buildings and are experienced in working with customers to implement it effectively. You can use our products to create an aesthetically pleasing environment that will last.

To help you choose the right floors and walls for each area of a hospital, the Altro Product Selector offers guidance in an instant.  See how your product choices would look with our 3D Space Visualiser.
