A vital environment is full of life—it’s vibrant and compelling. A space lacking in vitality is forgotten the minute one leaves it. Vitality is a critical element of an enriched environment—increasing each visitor’s engagement and stimulating them to participate  Vitality is restorative—by engaging the senses and conveying a sense of depth to the experience of being in a space.

Architecture and design that brings vitality engages all the senses—including hearing and smell as well as sight. Design with vitality is concerned with the flow of people through space; of creating spaces where ideas and creativity are promoted.
