By integrating natural elements into our buildings, we create environments that have a demonstrable impact on student well-being and academic performance. From reducing stress levels to enhancing attention and improving exam results, our buildings provide positive and peaceful spaces for both students and staff. Our team is ready to provide a solution tailored to meet the unique needs of your school.

How we utilise biophilic design principles

Biophilic design is a concept that aims to connect buildings with the natural world, creating healthier and more engaging environments in the process. First defined in the 1970s, this term incorporates elements such as natural light, views of nature, access to green spaces, and the use of natural materials, all of which are intended to foster a sense of well-being and promote productivity.

TG Escapes incorporate biophilic principles into every building we create. We maximise natural light through careful design and the use of features like sun pipes, ensuring bright and welcoming interiors. We also provide access to the outdoors with covered walkways and floor-to-ceiling glass doors. Large windows provide views of the surroundings whenever possible, promoting a sense of connection with the outdoor environment. Our ventilation systems prioritise fresh air circulation, contributing to a healthier indoor environment. In combination, these features can offer several pronounced benefits to the students and staff of your school.


How our school buildings support better academic performance

Our commitment to biophilic design ensures that every aspect of our buildings is crafted to provide clear advantages for staff and students:

  • Improved academic performance: Research indicates that biophilic learning spaces enhance cognitive function and concentration. Students studying in such environments demonstrate improved academic performance and increased engagement compared to those in standard ones.
  • Stress reduction: By integrating elements such as natural light and views of nature, biophilic design principles create a calming and soothing environment. This helps reduce stress levels among students and staff, fostering a positive learning atmosphere.
  • Enhanced well-being: Access to nature and outdoor spaces within a school environment contributes to the physical and mental well-being of students by promoting exercise and positive social interaction.
  • Sustainability: Biophilic design aligns with sustainability goals, allowing schools to reduce their carbon footprint and meet environmental targets.

By embracing biophilic design, schools can create positive, sustainable spaces that prioritise the well-being and academic success of their students.
