Good design prioritizes the health and well-being of all individuals, taking into account the physical, mental, and emotional effects on building occupants as well as the surrounding community. This principle underscores the importance of creating spaces that promote positive health outcomes and enhance the overall well-being of individuals. Overall, this principle highlights the holistic approach of good design, which considers the diverse impacts on people's health and well-being, both within buildings and in the broader community.
