Neuro-architecture: Why Purpose-Driven Projects Should Consider Modular Artisan Design
Great organizations, non-profits, and social movements evoke a feeling within the public that inspires people into action.
Great art does this, as well.
Now, with the rising study of neuro-architecture, we’re identifying with data-driven metrics what the greatest architects, builders, and visionaries have known all along:
Our body and brain respond to the space we’re in and the places we visit.
The feeling that a well-designed space gives the team working within it and how beautiful design inspires all those who visit can be crucial for organizations looking to build rapport quickly, keep creative output high, and affect positive change at every level.
But is high-design feasible for the average non-profit or pupose-driven project?
Escobedo Group’s new Dario Panelized System is making artisan projects like this feasible for any project conscious of how the space we’re in directly impacts our intuition, mood, and cognitive function.
More about Neuro-architecture
Architects across the world are learning more and more about the healing nature of great design. The study of neuro-architecture gives us solid data that the living and work spaces we occupy our time within have an emotional impact on us.
This is important for purpose-driven projects to keep in mind because so much non-profit work requires inspiring the public into action.
Neuro-architecture uses four principles when approaching living and workspace design:
- Sensation and perception – understanding proper use of lighting and color and its effect on the body’s biorhythms
- Learning and memory – proper use of shapes and movement, geometrical, rounded, or otherwise
- Decision making – productivity is reduced when we go into decision-fatigue and this can have a negative impact on the workplace; minimalist design which caters to how we more effectively make micro-decisions creates a positive impact on those in a space
- New experiences – there’s a delight when we walk into a space that flows perfectly and perfectly satiates us with color, personality, and fresh ideas
Non-Profits and Purpose-Driven Projects Benefit
Any business, organization, or group planning on meeting with investors, donors, and changemakers on a regular basis should be utilizing neuro-architectural designs to create a space that feels safe, friendly, and productive.
However, these kinds of spaces can oftentimes balloon in scope, time, and budget quickly.
That’s why we’ve introduced the Dario Panelized System at Escobedo Group.
The Dario panelized construction process allows us to build fully systems-integrated floor, wall and roof panels in-house with the same quality and precision with which we have always built onsite; now we simply build in a controlled atmosphere, with our own skilled craftsmen who ultimately erect the structures onsite– as well as provide high level artisan-quality fabrication of architectural elements of stone, steel and millwork.
That means that you get the quality design and feeling you’re looking for in less time and on a budget that won’t balloon out of control.
One-of-a-kind designs in steel, stone and millwork have historically been delegated to a very long and often, very expensive process.
By working with the Escobedo Group design team, we can help your organization land on a design that will evoke the kind of feeling your project wants to provide to the world. And by utilizing the modular design aspects of the Dario Panelized System we’ll be able to land on a more concrete building schedule and budget.
You get the artisan space your project deserves in a timeframe that makes fiscal sense.
Cities, buildings, and infrastructure design are now proven to have a direct impact on our mood and well-being. We each have specialized cells in the hippocampal region of our brains which are attuned to the geometry and arrangement of the spaces we inhabit.
This kind of thinking and design has been brought into many of the places we consider holy or sacrosanct, but now non-profits and purpose-driven projects can tap into that same design philosophy to create an essence around their project.
Many of the greatest architectural achievements—the projects that strike us at an emotional level—took hundreds of years to build. Our process cuts build times by up to half that of conventional construction. The Dario Panelized System allows any project to enjoy a deep level of artisan detail, design, and emotional impact on a timeframe that matches the needs of nearly any organization.
