DiCaprio purchases multi-million dollar home designed around wellness
By Tom Anstey 25 Nov 2013
Leonardo DiCaprio has purchased one of the world's first 'WELL-Certified' residences
Golden Globe award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio has purchased a multi-million dollar unit in Greenwich Village, New York, US, boasting more than 50 wellness and health features.

The property, designed wellness property developers Delos Living, is housed inside a converted factory originally built in 1987 and is described as ‘the world’s first WELL-Certified residences.”

While hotels and spas have increasingly marketed wellness environments to guests, Delos is pushing the idea into homes and as such has spent more than five years in conjunction with Columbia University researching ways to develop and integrate holistic health and wellness solutions that can be deployed in a home environment.

The company’s holistic wellness approach is designed to enhance inhabitants of its homes by focusing on indoor air quality, circadian lighting, water quality, optimal acoustics and many other therapeutic features that impact mind and body. Delos says that its spaces positively affect every domain of human health and wellness, from cardiovascular, respiratory, and immune function to emotional health. Residents of a Delos home also benefit from an exclusive wellness programme with leaders in the medical community.

Former President of the United States Bill Clinton has said that Delos is “trying to get people to rethink the way they design buildings and change the way we live in a very positive way.”

Di Caprio, who is also an investor in the project, described the new residences as “innovative building designs that enhance both human health and improve the environment.”

A GSWS representative commented: “Nearly all famous movie stars have multimillion-dollar homes, but (Di Caprio’s) commitment to living in a healthy environment – and his celebrity status – sets an example that people everywhere can and will follow, even if they live in a simple dwelling.

Delos has also introduced WELL-Certification, which was created to address the need for a simple, comprehensive performance-based standard for defining wellness outside of a traditional setting.

On 7 November, Delos introduced its first WELL-Certified office in Los Angeles, California, US, designed to improve productivity, sharpen focus, increase creativity, speed and accuracy, and reduce absenteeism. Some of the features in the new ‘wellness office’ includes air filtration systems, sound damping walls, VOC-free paints, water purification, ergonomic desks and chairs, biophilic plantings, energy absorbing flooring, and smart lighting systems.

Delos also created the ‘stay well’ rooms at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas, US which thanks to their success, will increase its room count from 42 to 171 rooms and suites, encompassing the entire fourteenth floor of the hotel’s main tower.
