D/Science is a certified evidence-based design (EBD) research bureau with the mission to optimize the fit between the design of an environment and the needs and requirements of its users. Believing strongly that physical design can have a fundamental effect on the well-being of people, D/Science aims to determine how the built environment can contribute to minimalize unnecessary negative experiences – maximise positive experiences like feelings of happiness.
MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
D/Science applies evidence-based design to systematically evaluate the impact of environments on people. By integrating knowledge of environmental psychology and conducting a research study prior to the design process an environment can be optimally adapted to the user-group. A post occupancy evaluation moreover can determine the quality and the actual effects of the environment on people’s comfort, health and productivity.
