In this study, we conducted subject experiments to determine an effective biophilic design for urban offices to improve the health and comfort of workers. This experiment showed that indoor environment satisfaction, the impression of a workspace, ease of work, and self-estimated productivity were improved when subjects could see greenery through the window with a balanced amount of sunlight through the green. Additionally, cognitive function in subjects was restored during the break period of the short-term memory test, resulting in higher test scores.
