THERE IS A MISSING PIECE OF THE PUZZLE.
In Europe, we spend 90% of our time lives indoors.
Buildings we live, work and spend our leisure time affect our health, wellbeing, ability to work and be creative
Many people live in unhealthy homes and work in unhealthy and unproductive offices
Indoor temperature, light, air and noise impact us daily and, in some cases, have long term consequences on our health
Appropriate temperature is vital for people who spend long periods of time in both homes and non-residential buildings
Light is essential to our performance at work, emotional wellbeing and it regulates sleeping patterns
Every day we take roughly 20,000 breaths. Poor air circulation may result in sneezing and coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue, headache, nausea, dizziness and irritation of the throat, eyes, nose and skin
Monotonous background noise, echoey spaces,and sudden loud sounds can result in loss of concentration discomfort, frustration, distress and irritation
It is time to put people at the center of building design, operation and renovation
