Delos: Wellness Real Estate™

wellness-lighting-delos

Introducing Delos Living, Wellness Real Estate™, a real estate concept that is holistically integrated into building architecture and design to enhance the health and well-being of the occupants.

Delos, and Manhattan real estate firm, envisions a future where our environments, the places where we live, work and play, contribute actively to our happiness, health and well-being. With this vision, Delos pioneered the concept of Wellness Real Estate™ – merging medicine and science with design and construction to reinvent the role of the built environment on our health.

Delos has broadened the scope beyond just environmental sustainability – by including the best concepts of green technology, they have developed an integrated solution that addresses a complete human sustainability.

Delos Concept: Human Sustainability

The WELL Building Standard® is the first protocol of its kind that focuses on human wellness within the built environment. It identifies specific conditions, that when holistically integrated into building architecture and design, enhance the health and well-being of the occupants. A proprietary protocol, the WELL Building Standard® is the culmination of six years of research developed by Delos, in partnership with leading scientists, doctors, architects and wellness thought leaders.

Leonardo DiCaprio Invests in Multimillion Dollar ‘Wellness’ Apartments

Actor adds to his New York City real estate with the purchase of one of five new sustainable units at 66 East 11th Street.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s preference for sustainable living is a well known characteristic, but now it appears that the actor, on the verge of turning 40, is also paying attention to wellness.

Leonardo DiCaprio invests in multimillion dollar 'wellness' apartments conceptualized by Delos

The 39-year-old has just invested millions in one of five new state-of-that-art wellness units available at 66 East 11th Street in Greenwich Village. Prices range from $15 million for a three-bedroom to $45M-50M for penthouse/mansion floor plans. Those familiar with green building standards will be pleased to see all the standard features here (soy-based insulation, bamboo floors, LEED-construction, etc.), but it’s the wellness additions that herald a new hybrid approach to sustainable living.

“The simplest way to understand what this home is capable of doing is to think of it like a 24-hour carwash that works on the human body,” Paul D. Scialla, co-founder and the managing partner of Delos, the Manhattan real estate firm that developed the project, told the NY Times.

What kind of healthy-living perks can someone like DiCaprio look forward to? Here’s a bit of wellness geek-speak from the website:

Imagine 50 plus built-in wellness amenities, including vitamin C-infused showers, purified air and water, posture-supportive flooring, a kitchen herbarium, and dawn simulation provided by a proprietary circadian lighting design. Then add access to Donna Karan’s Urban Zen wellness concierge to curate and coordinate your daily wellness experiences, all set in a spectacular condominium building.

Dr. Deepak Chopra

It may sound ridiculous (a vitamin C-infused shower?!), but the science behind the building’s amenities was studied for years with input from Columbia University Medical School and the Mayo Clinic. Even holistic health guru Dr. Deepak Chopra sits on the board of advisers for Delos.

“The environment is you. It is your extended body. Your home is also your extended body. It only stands to reason that the healthier the home, the healthier the body,” explained Dr. Chopra in a press release.

DiCaprio, who will also join the board, praised the firm’s approach to sustainable living saying, “Delos creates innovative building designs that both enhance human health and improve the environment.”

From the Architects:

Brand image and interior design project for the dental office Dental Angels in Barcelona’s central Ensanche Neighborhood, in a small and narrow space at street level.

The owner, a young doctor, wanted to create a modern and functional clinic that reflects the charm and pleasantness suggested by its name: Dental Angels.

The aims of the project were to achieve a differentiating image, elegant while accessible, professional and fresh. The spaces had to be wide and bright and the ambience warm and comfortable. For this purpose, an organic distribution was proposed were all the functions would be placed in a unique continuous space that would suggest dynamism and a spacious feel.

White color was chosen as a base color, adding gold and light blue accents by corporative elements like the golden signs, elements like the cylindrical displays or the RGB LED linear indirect light. Timeless materials or finishes like white satin lacquer, laminated panels for the clinical furniture or light linoleum for the pavements are used, combined with surfaces that add lightness and warmth like the gold aluminium or the walnut.

Light colors, curved shapes and the indirect lighting which goes through all the areas, convey the sensation of calm and balance both for patients and medical staff.
