This study argues that as a key measure of success in biophilic design, biophilic behaviours, should be defined, understood, supported, and encouraged within the design process. The study reviewed social science and built environment literature to define and evaluate behaviours and behavioural determinants relevant to biophilic design. An outline methodology proposes the alignment of behaviour change techniques to biophilic design stages. This incorporates the conditions of behavioural opportunity, motivation, and capacity. We conclude by calling for multidisciplinary cooperation and the alignment of behavioural objectives across the built environment and social science fields.
