Using Feng Shui
in the Design
and Development Process
- Preliminary design: This includes program creation,
schematic design sketches, finished presentation-format
preliminary drawing, and all meetings leading to the completion
of a finished owner-approved preliminary design presentation.
- Construction documents: Drawn with CAD for clarity,
accuracy, ease in revisions, and speed in production,
drawings are top quality and are taken to the end result
of obtaining a building permit by the contractor. This
would include interfacing between any required additional
engineering consultants, but, would not include fees for
- Feng Shui Energy efficient, nontoxic design &
Sacred Geometry are incorporated into the design on
a negotiated basis, often as part of the overall design
package. "Green" and nontoxic building materials selection,
specification and application including all maintenance
and cleaning substances.
- Scientific, economical and sociological analyses
have provided enough evidence to warrant serious concern
about various building materials throughout their
full life cycle, from creation through installation
to termination and ultimate disposal of the material.
- Some materials wreak environmental and economical
havoc upon the local climate as a result of their
harvesting, while others actually cause health hazards
to the workers who extract and develop the material
either in its creation or application. Toxic waste
byproducts are created in many materials extraction
or refinement processes. Another important consideration
is the fact that the energy it takes to create a material
through its entire life cycle of production and installation
often dramatically exceeds any savings the product
or material may produce!
- Sacred geometry, and ancient art and science, is
the practice of proportioning spaces according to
geometry that is found throughout nature. These patterns
found in natural form are the results of the energy
flows, and how miraculously exquisite these geometric
patterns are! Consider the ramifications of surrounding
oneself with these naturally occurring patterns sculpted
into one's environment!
- The ancient Chinese art of feng shui is the study
of energy movement. This electromagnetic energy that
flows around, over and through the earth is called
telluric energy and is analogous to the same energy
that flows around, over and through their own physical
bodies, known to acupuncturists as meridian lines.
This energy is mysterious only to the uninitiated.
It can be studied and worked with. Negative energy
lines can be dispersed while positive energy lines
are incorporated into ones environment consciously
to improve one's health, happiness, prosperity and
