We continuously strive to improve our knowledge and contribute to the knowledge within the field of green architecture. This has led us to set up MOSS Lab which aims to explore, reveal, and unleash the impact of biophilic spaces.




MOSS Lab looks into the world of plants and their benefits on the users’ well-being . We are especially interested in the topics that have limited studies to contribute to a healthier urban environment.


We know that we are not alone in this and we believe that collaboration and multidisciplinary partnerships can bring fruitful and innovative results which can revolutionize the way we design with plants.

Since our aim is to bridge the gap between research and design, our research methods not only consist of literature reviews but also experimental research. The combined methods allow us to understand the topic theoretically as well as practically; yielding qualitative data that can be applied to our projects.



Impact of scales of greenery on well-being: 

Research & Framework

The benefits of plants on well-being is widely known, yet a concrete understanding of the effect of plants on our stress and productivity remains ambiguous. To tackle the unknown, MOSS teamed up with MSc students of Wageningen University in 2021 to design a study that explores the effects of different scales of indoor green on well-being.

Impact of scales of greenery on well-being: 

Experiment & Findings

In a experiment conducted by Marlies Elbertse of Wageningen University in 2021, and based on MOSS Lab 1.0, we revealed a breakthrough in the world’s understanding of plants. In rooms set up with 0%, 0.5%, and 8% green volume, 8% had the most positive effect on participants’ heart rates, stress levels, and performance.

Impact of green on spatial acoustics:

Pilot experiment & Findings

Together with MSc students of Wageningen University and technicians from Sorama, we piloted five tests to study how plant species, substrate, and arrangements influence spatial acoustics. It was found that plants indeed have the ability to improve acoustics with the scattered arrangement being the most effective.
