Empirical evidences in the last three decades confirmed that designs that connect humans to natural contents and landscape configurations, help to enhance humans’ overall sense of wellbeing, with positive and therapeutic consequences on physiology. Findings in the field of environmental psychology showed also that these features have positive effects on human productivity and can reduce stress. Opportunities for contact with these elements are, however, increasingly reduced in modern urban life. Therefore, more attention has been recently paid by architectural theorists to find ways to reconnect the built environment to these elements. Biophilia is one of the most recent and viable reconnection theories in this field. This paper highlights the underpinnings of this design theory and addresses the assumption that one of the reasons behind the great admiration that most of the people have for historical buildings attributes to the biophilic qualities found in these buildings. By drawing inspiration from historical architecture, and by use of a qualitative analytical methodology that typify certain characteristics in then, this paper brings in conclusion specific biophilic strategies and settings that might help ‘bringing life to buildings’, as seen in these buildings.
