Wellness & real estate at soho house
April 24, 2018
Together with The Kristin Hurd Team, we co-hosted a panel at Soho House on Wellness Real Estate.
The conversation, moderated by our founder Janera Soerel, included Kristin Hurd a top New York City residential real estate broker, Stephen Rizzo the founder of Better Spaces, Roopakshi Mathur an interior designer, and Lisa Roberts Hurd an archeologist turned wellness expert.
They discussed the subjective opinions of each panelist on what wellness real estate means, to the objective drivers of this trend and its effects on property values.
Everyone agreed that bringing natural elements back into the built environment improves the occupants' experience and wellbeing. Easy-to-implement tips are to open windows, add plants and other biophilic design, change up the energy of a space through better light, using non-toxic materials, and applying scents.
The conversation culminated with a discussion on the importance of being connected to an engaged community. Stephen concluded that engaged communities come together in better spaces.
