Biophilia has touched just about every aspect of our lives in its rise to being the most popular design trend of the year. While its influence has been seen mainly in design and architecture, the spa and wellness industry is taking note of its benefits.

An article by industry publication Hotel Designs stated that spa and wellness spaces will rise in popularity as the pandemic tapers off.

“UK hotel spas are set to provide an alternative to holidays abroad as staycations are expected to boom,” the article’s author, Hamish Kilburn, wrote. “There has been a 1900 percent increase in searches for ‘when do spas open?’ post road map announcement, as reported in Google’s search trends.”

While the biophilic design has now become popularized in residential and commercial spaces, Kilburn notes that it’s been an instrumental element in the spa and wellness industry.

“Not all sites of course are blessed with an inspiring mountain top, edge of the ocean location, or a view of the pristine countryside or even a glacier,” he continued. “But with good design, it’s very possible for a building to ‘transcend’ the location and benefit from a biophilic design approach.”
