To ensure an immersive wellbeing experience, Velvære has enrolled with the International WELL Building Institute to pursue the WELL Certification under the WELL Building Standard, the world’s premier performance-based, third-party verified rating system focused on measuring, certifying and monitoring design and operation features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing to prevent chronic diseases by improving air, water and lighting qualities, nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep patterns and performance of its occupants. Other innovative partners include Delos – a leader in science-backed solutions for healthier indoor spaces. Delos uses an evidence-based approach to identify and vet best-in-class wellness solutions such as advanced air purification, water filtration, circadian lighting and enhanced sleep solutions, helping transform the entire experience of a healthier home.
Each residence will include customized in-home sanctuary spaces that bring the wellbeing experience fully into the home. Sanctuary options will include light therapy, plunge pools, saunas, steam rooms and more. The first residences are slated for completion by early 2024.
