Bill will present some of Terrapin’s latest research about biophilic design in hospitality design. The research looks at how natural elements and patterns of nature can enhance the guest experience. The research specifically examines how biophilic design can affect room rates, lobby use and activity, and guest reviews, among other aspects of hospitality. This forthcoming research is sponsored by Interface. We hope to see you there!
