Make Waves: Designing Spaces for Comfort and Well-being


Julian Treasure examines a renewed focus on indoor environmental quality—how it helps us to design, build, and renovate better spaces where people can connect, collaborate, and concentrate. Pre-pandemic we understood how much acoustics, lighting design, and sustainability contribute to our well-being. Now, more and more specifiers are thinking of interior spaces as ecosystems made up of a wider variety of elements working together to form healthier built environments for people. Join us to learn more about how human-centered, holistically designed interiors can improve occupants’ quality of life in commercial spaces.
