Nature and the Healing Environment
JALARTS creates warm and inviting environments that reduce stress and promote healing. Because studies show that exposure to nature has a positive effect on the healing process and contributes to an atmosphere of serenity and calm, we design environments using nature-oriented elements such as color, texture, lighting and art, etc. Combining this process with practical spatial design and the use of earth-friendly and non-toxic materials, JALARTS creates spaces which are uplifting for the spirit of their inhabitants.
Some of the most important aspects to consider in interior design are the health of the indoor environment, of the occupants and of the materials used. JALARTS will specify the most suitable sustainable and non-toxic finish materials for your project. Sustainable materials include those that are recycled, recyclable, locally manufactured, rapidly renewable, naturally made, promote good air quality, and are water/energy efficient.
Presentations and Exhibits
JALARTS offers a presentation entitled “Nature and the Healing Environment”, which describes how we can create environments that reduce stress and promote healing through the use of color, texture, art, light and other nature elements. This Powerpoint presentation is illustrated with colorful photos and an artistic hands-on display of environmentally friendly finish materials. We also offer a traveling exhibit of sustainable finish materials (20 boards with 20 materials). Contact JALARTS to inquire about these complimentary offerings.
