Furthermore, the spaces could be undemanding because of the underlaid mental influence. People do not have to know they are in need for relaxation they just are in a space that has that kind of effect on them, which in turn can reduce tensions and negative thoughts. Biophilic environments can have that influence on us.
The creation of biophilic environments could be complicated, because biophilic design also expects the use of natural materials. However, today’s health regulations for schools in Estonia demand the use of durable and easily washable materials in schools interiors (Tervisekaitsenõuded koolidele, 2013). Fortunately, large amount of designers and researchers are dealing with developing new close to natural materials that can withstand excessive
