About Us

Founded in 1989, with the much appreciated aid of the Prince's Trust charity, Pheeco now find ourselves celebrating 30 years in business. In that time we have remained an independent, family operated business, something we are extremely proud of.

During the years we discovered a design concept that resonated with everything we have tried to achieve. "Biophilic Design"is used within the building industry, to improve occupant health & wellbeing, reduce environmental impact, and create economic benefits within urban environments. We take influence from its ideas and add our own Pheeco twist.

Biophilic Design follows two central ideas, the Direct and Indirect use of nature.

Direct:

The physical incorporation of nature within a built environment. Planting, lighting and air quality represent some of the ways that this can be achieved.

Indirect:

The simulation of natural environments. Creating an association to nature, without it being physically present. This can be done through the selection of surfaces, colours and imagery.

Although its name was coined in recent history, indicators of biophilic design can be seen in architecture for the entirety of built environments.

Methods

Lighting

Consideration of both natural light sources, as well as artificial lighting that follows a "human centric" approach.  

Planting

Bringing vegetation to the exterior and interior spaces of the building provides a direct relationship to nature.

Air Quality

Ventilation, temperature, and humidity can be utilised through the use of windows and other strategies.

Imagery

Images of nature can be implemented through paintings, photos, sculptures, murals etc.

Materials

Natural materials can be incorporated into buildings through the use of wood and stone. Interior design should use natural fabrics, furnishings, and leather.

Colours

Colours should be sympathetic to natural tones. Brighter colours, used sparingly for subtle impact and focus.
