of people living in industrialized countries spend a high percentage
of their time indoors. This same population is often stressed, burned
out and unhealthy. Living and working in artificially created, traditional
or poorly designed spaces with little presence of organic or natural
materials, and no direct connection to nature, substantially contributes
to the stress of modern life.
30 years of research, remodeling and project experiences led me to identify
key elements that were missing in people’s lives (including my
own) as a result of outmoded value systems and rubber stamping of buildings
throughout the building industry. These missing elements contribute
directly to daily stress and fatigue.
People are individuals all with unique fingerprints. When individual
needs are met the collective result can be a much healthier society.
By identifying "un-balanced areas" or missing elements —
corrections can be easily applied to any type of building. The first
four elements are usually improvements done with custom lighting design,
therapeutic paint colors, fresh air movement and water features.
Additional steps may include remodeling within geometric or radiused
shapes and ergonomic (human factors) layouts, embedded graphics, plants
(oxygen supply) and noise reduction.
5D Environments is a combined method of architecture, engineering, and
interior design: Architecture based on weather and location, by creating
micro climates and protection from our new weather patterns; engineering
by mirroring nature with solar heating/ cooling; landscaping with permaculture
and gray water; interior design as interior recharging, all directed
to providing high vibration of spatial and spiritual energies.
