As the vibrant spring weather sweeps across New York and beyond, luxury condos across the United States are leveraging the power of natural light, fresh air, and water features to promote wellness and enhance the living experience. This trend is fueled by the rising popularity of biophilia, a design philosophy that prioritizes the human connection to the natural world. In response to this demand, luxury condos are adopting unique architecture, innovative window systems, and indoor-outdoor designs that enable residents to engage with nature and promote wellness.
