Covid Inspires Wellness-Designed Virtual Showcase Home
“Outdoor living has always been a key component of wellness design, but it has gained even more importance during this pandemic. Those who have private outdoor rooms have generally been able to gather more safely and enjoy healthy connections to nature more easily than those who don’t. Laura Muller of Canoga Park, California designed the showcase home’s outdoor terrace. “We seamlessly separated this massive space into zones, where activities would be separate but not excluded from each other. We created a space for swimming and lounging, yoga and meditation, and conversation and dining.
It was also important that the spaces felt like they were integrated into the landscape, she noted, and incorporate plants like lavender, rosemary and sage that would contribute to the overall wellness potential of the home. “We incorporate many of these design strategies for healthy living into our client’s homes, as well in our own home,” she commented. Her Southern California location means taking advantage of outdoor living year-round, and designing spaces that flow between inside and out with walls of doors that open and disappear.”
