Biophilic Building Design Our culture has been neglecting the impact living conditions have on us. As we emerge into a new society we see the need to change our living situations and it starts with our homes where we retreat, rest and enjoy the comfort of our families and friends. Wholesome living incorporates personal wellbeing, healthy materials and sustainability. Many different building systems exist that are coherent with biophilic and holistic living. Earth, wood, bamboo, hemp, stone, lime and straw all serve as natural and sustainable building materials. Holistic living not only incorporates structure, positive geometry and materials that are conducive to wellbeing but also all the systems contained are part of Green New World’s approach to providing models for holistic living.
