Kolkata Enhancing Residential Spaces with Biophilic Design

With massive real estate developments taking place across Kolkata and its fringe areas, real estate companies are imbibing the concept of Biophilic design. Biophilic design incorporates natural elements into the man-made environment to enhance well-being and productivity. Now that Kolkata and its fringe areas such as Joka, Sonarpur-Rajpur, New Town, and Rajarhat witnessing maximum development, realtors as well as the buyers are considering Biophilic design as one of the requirements in residential projects for creating harmonious living spaces.

Biophilic design involves various elements, including adding natural light, introducing indoor plants, and using natural materials such as wood and stone. These elements apart from enhancing aesthetics are also improving air quality, reducing stress levels, and fostering a sense of tranquility within residential spaces.

City’s architects and interior designers are effortlessly integrating nature-inspired elements to create an oasis amidst the urban landscape. Large windows allow natural light to fill up the interiors, creating a sense of openness and linking the outdoors. The lush greenery in the form of indoor gardening and vertical gardening offered by Biophilic designs beautifies communal areas as well as personal spaces and balconies, providing residents with a retreat from the buzz of busy city life.

“Embracing change is essential in shaping a dynamic environment. We believe that by fostering collaboration, prioritizing technology, and emphasizing well-being, we not only enhance productivity but also redefine the very essence of work itself,” Mr B P Singh Roy, COO – Sales & Marketing of Keventer said.

With more complexes in the Sonarpur-Rajpur area, CMD of Rajat Group Mr. Raj Pasari said, “Several home buyers are seeking for greenery, where they can have a proper morning walking space along with play areas for their children. This is not only to rejuvenate oneself, but adding greenery is vital in terms of resisting global warming and showing our commitment to environmental causes.”

Biophilic design signifies a transformative approach to residential architecture, particularly in urban centers like Kolkata and Howrah. Mr. Arya Sumant, Managing Director, Eden Realty Group said, “Eden believes in assimilating natural elements, and create spaces that not only elevate the quality of life but also add to a more sustainable future. Our recent launch Jalsha has Sky Garden which is first of its kind in Howrah.”
