Developers and architects have begun to approach a good night’s sleep as a challenge worth solving, moving away from technology to a calmer way of living in bedrooms, says Roxana Popescu for the Washington Post. A new focus on how design can support sleep, especially in urban areas with a lot of light and noise, is starting to take root in home building.
“Sleep, like clean air, increasingly has the potential to be the new luxury good,” said Rachel Gutter, the chief product officer of the International Well Building Institute, which offers a health and wellness building standard modeled after LEED environmental ratings. “We are increasingly cognizant of how our homes and our offices directly contribute to our health and well being.”
Between high-tech solutions, such as light bulbs that promote alertness in the day and rest at night, and more primal ones, such as moving the bedroom or sometimes the whole house away from busy streets and into nature, the various approaches to sleep-friendly housing say one thing: “A good night’s sleep is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and our families,” Gutter said.
