Feng Shui, Vastu Sastra


These are two additional tools that can be used in the design of a custom home. Both are ancient scientific methods of architecture originating from, and encompassing the spiritual philosophies and cultures of China and India. Feng shui from China and Vastu Sastra from India.

Typically, these sciences have been misrepresented and misunderstood by Westerners, especially Feng Shui. Vastu Sastra is still relatively unknown to Western society.

Much of the stigma regarding Feng Shui is due to practitioners trying to correct a home that was not initially designed according to the principles of Feng Shui, so they resort to using tools such as hanging mirrors above stairs or embedding crystals in walls.

Feng Shui or Vastu Sastra should be employed from the start of design, especially before the site is selected. The site is all important to both methods, so if a client wants to incorporate either, the designer should be consulted in the selection of the site.

If a client makes the decision to use either of these sciences in the design of their home, it will be a guiding force used throughout the design process. All design decisions will be made based on these techniques. The end result will be a home that flows well, enriching and enhancing the health and well being of the owners, their families and guests.
