Helping you shape your living and working spaces with Environmental Psychology!

Making healthy and happy spaces designed for your needs!


We are passionate about our planet and sustainability matters to us. We promote practical Sustainable and Healthy Living. We work with the psychological factors involved in designing a space as well as the physical aspects usually considered by other architects and interior designers.

To help people and cities to resolve some of their health issues by design (where applicable) applying environmental psychology and sustainable approahces.

We are here to help you!

To identify the environmental and design issues of your place and assist you to change or redesign it with a scientific approach of environmental psychology, customized for your needs!

   Your health and wellbeing matters!

  Scientific experiments in environmental psychology prove that the

  environmental characteristics of a space can affect individuals at three

  different levels:


  At a psychological level:

  Stress, distraction, lack of attention, aggression, mental fatigue, depression,

  negative emotions

  At a physiological level:

  High heart rate, high blood pressure, shortness of breath


  At a social level:

  Decreased self-attachment and sense of belonging, as well as decreased

  effectiveness in professional interactions and an increase in feelings of being

  under threat and lacking control.
