Connecting Humans with Nature
In the nearly twenty years of BASICS’ existence, we have tested out countless design principles to see which serves our stakeholders the best. Each iteration has pointed us in the direction of Nature-Integrated Design or NID, an approach that we have developed as a guiding principle for all our projects.
NID is a holistic approach to design that connects humans with nature, focusing on the health & wellbeing of end-users while minimising the impact of architecture on the environment.
Two Pronged Strategy
Through NID, we focus on the simple but profound benefits of natural elements – the value of sunlight, fresh air, greenery, and pleasant views – and develop each project, from the conceptual stage itself, to maximise these benefits.
NID enables us to create spaces that are habitable and sustainable. The parameters of NID address user comfort in all its forms, be it thermal, visual, tactile or spatial.
NID also addresses the overall impact of the built space on its site, setting and context. Through NID, we focus on making spaces resilient, resource-efficient and in sync with nature.
