The spaces that we live in influence the physiological and psychological aspects of our bodies and psyches. A personal wellness retreat with neuro-architectural elements was designed by Stephanie Parisi Studio for a physician who works a combination of day and night shifts. High levels of stress have been observed in this profession, in which approximately 50% of doctors experience symptoms of burnout at some point in their careers. This home was designed to have tranquil and restorative effects intended to counter common stressors experienced in the busy environment of a hospital.
The aim of this study is to explore the effects of a living home designed with neuro-architectural elements
on variables measured from an ŌURA ring related to sleep.
