Yesterday I was reminded of why I have made this lifestyle choice.
It was a beautiful day and I was in town to buy the christmas cards I mentioned. I rang a friend and arranged to meet up but had then created some waiting time. I ended up in the garden of the church of St Augustine, under some beautiful trees in the dappled sunlight and I called some architects I haven’t spoken to in a while. All I could think was, “this is why I’m working for myself”.
Hooray! This seems to be the literature review that captures all of the Evidence Based Design recommended practices in healthcare. I reckon that if providing views of nature can daylight can improve people’s recovery rates and pain response when they’re in hospital, there’s a good chance it will help when they’re working or learning too. It certainly works for me 🙂
