Through consideration of the built heritage in terms of biophilic characteristics, different approaches and elements of establishing a relationship to nature can be recognized, which in different ways evolved depending on location, climate, social and cultural conditions. The paper discusses some elements of biophilic design as well as their expression in architectural creation, with an emphasis on highlighting elements of biophilic design in architectural heritage. The importance of connecting people with nature and the need for this connection to be realized for people in urban areas is indicated by numerous papers that prove that nature has a positive effect on the quality of work, education, health, recreation, housing and others. Nowadays, man is more and more alienated from nature by using modern technology to make his life and work easier. New technologies are increasingly represented in our lives, so our built environment has changed very dynamically in the 20th centu...ry, as well as at the beginning of the 21st century. Since there is an adverse effect on the physical, psychological and health condition of man, the experience and skills arising from the architectural heritage are becoming increasingly important in order to overcome the problems. This paper presents a brief overview of papers that consider the impact of urban environment on human well-being, as well as studies that address the topic of biophilia as an approach dealing with the need of man to be in a natural environment. The aim of the paper is to indicate that the appreciation of the experience and skills arising from the architectural heritage can provide better places in the future and human well-being.
