The presence of nature in office environments can have a positive impact on the well-being and productivity of workers.
Biophilic urbanism integrates natural elements and features such as parks, green streets, green walls, and pot plants, into urban landscapes . This approach has tangible benefits for cities such as reduced air-conditioning loads, reduced urban temperatures, improved health and well-being, improved storm water management, and lower crime rates . With the increasing impacts of climate change and population pressure, more sustainable urban design is needed.
BMM has a number of pot plants around the office, as well as surrounding views of trees. The experience of nature has been shown to improve general health and well-being, job satisfaction, and a reduced intention to quit . A study has shown that having pot plants in the office can increase task productivity by 12% .
