Description

Ben is currently working with a number of practices in Sydney and Melbourne to set up an Australian Forum. In his quest to explain what makes us happy, Dolan touches on a powerful idea: happiness need not be pursued, simply rediscovered. He coaches mindfulness at the practice and in his free time, and in 2017 founded the Architects' Mental Wellbeing Forum, which is focused on improving mental health within the industry. I found that developers and operators were becoming increasingly interested in the wellbeing of their residents –albeit this was mainly physical, rather than mental wellbeing. We're delighted to announce we have completed a deal with Southern Housing Group, to deliver the residential phase of Parkhouse Street development with 100% affordable housing.

In exploring the relationship between ceiling height and mood, Channon talks about a link between higher ceilings and a greater sense of psychological freedom. Daylight affects a number of our basic systems, such as the circadian rhythm – our biological clock – which regulates the timing of periods of sleepiness and wakefulness throughout the day. He also explains why happiness is crucial in the workplace because it leads to the behaviour organisations care about.

For such a little amount of money, this window treatment has absolutely transformed the small space, so it’s a great option if you are short on time or funds. We believe in building lasting relationships with our clients, so we always go the extra mile to make sure that you are happy! First and foremost, I’m an associate and mental wellbeing ambassador at Assael Architecture, where I’ve worked for six years. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, approachable company that provides quality service and great results! He discusses the recent reduction in facilities like sports centres, football pitches, swimming pools and tennis courts, and the negative effect this can have on the overall wellbeing of a community.

From this experience, he realised that mental health issues are universal and that anyone can find themselves struggling.The book has already won favour from some of architecture’s most prominent spokespersons, including TV-star Kevin McCloud of Grand Designs saying that “anyone building a house should read this first. As issues around physical and mental wellbeing become more prominent in the media and wider society, ‘Happy by Design’ offers design tips and tricks to everyone from property developers, architects, stay at home parents, university students or the recently retired, and outlines simple ways they can make rooms, homes or offices happier places to be in. Danish lighting designer Poul Henningsen devoted much of his career to designing glare-free and uniform illumination, which has been shown to reduce headaches and improve productivity.

It reveals how architecture and design can make us happy and support mental health, and explains how poor design can have the opposite effect. Hallewell Publications is a small publishing house based in Argyll which concentrates largely on a single project: a popular series of walking guides which covers Scotland and selected areas of England. Happy by Design takes a stripped back approach to the intersection between design and mental health. He coaches mindfulness at the practice and in his free time and in 2017 founded and chairs the Architects’ Mental Wellbeing Forum, which is focused on improving mental health within the industry.

In 2017, Ben co-founded the Architects’ Mental Wellbeing Forum, which is focused on improving mental health within the industry. Written by one of the UK's leading lighting designers on both commercial and residential projects, it features a variety of real-world projects. The author of Happy by Design: A Guide to Architecture and Wellbeing (2019, RIBA Publishing), Ben regularly speaks on this subject to businesses and universities around the world.

In 2017 Ben co-founded the Architects’ Mental Wellbeing Forum, which is focused on improving mental health within the industry. Given that we spend over 80% of our time in buildings, shouldn’t we have a better understanding of how they make us feel? I often worry that architects and developers have become distracted by other issues – some more worthy than others – and have forgotten that when it comes down to it, they’re designing homes and buildings for people.

I hope the book will widen the debate around mental wellbeing in the built environment and help us all understand that we all have control over our immediate surroundings to make changes that will better our sense of wellbeing. Basing a design advice to achieve well-being or happiness only on a single study sometimes isn't exactly objective in my opinion. Where possible, try to provide high-level windows that don’t permit views in from neighbouring properties. Thank you for your comment – I wrote this article, however, the author of the Happy by Design guide is Ben Channon. Lighter colors will give you maximum reflective powers, and a glossy finish can add extra luminosity.
