FENG SHUI HOUSE DESIGN 2010
A collaboration of Mr Yakura’s vision, Charlyne’s Feng Shui design & Rob Matthes’ architectural creation.
DESIGN BY M. CHARLYNE CHIASSON of ADARSA: Elemental Design & ROB MATTHES of MATTHES ARCHITECTURE
Hired by Mr Yakura to design a ‘Feng Shui House ‘ for a Rossland property, we worked extensively together to create his vision. This design was then submitted to Rob Mattas of Matthas Architecture and the process of creating a viable shell, around a design concept started. This process was an intense and valuable learning experience. I came to understand that while I can design a Feng Shui house, when that is interpreted into alternative designs, I have much explaining to do within ‘Feng Shui’ parameters. It can be a frustrating experience for both designer and architect when so much of what I incorporate is from an expanded view of logical good design via over 20 years of Feng Shui practice.
Consequently this experience, and that with other professions in the design and development field led me to writing ‘A Professional Guide to Feng Shui’. Designed specifically for ARCHITECTS, BUILDERS, DEVELOPERS, DESIGNERS and DECORATORS it follows the 5 Transformation Theory ( 5 elements) and assigns an element to each of the above professions. To be used as a reference and simplistic guide to Feng Shui principles it is currently being edited and illustrated for publishing.
The finished drawings below show the results of this collaboration of Mr Yakura’s vision, my Design and Rob’s Architecture to create a beautiful ‘Feng Shui Home’ ~
The sketches below are to show you a part of the ‘Feng Shui Design’ process. I sited the home based on many factors starting with the Feng Shui Landscape which includes many of the architectural check points used universally for home siting~ including access, view, sun orientation, cost of construction etc.
Many Feng Shui Designs are logical, fundamental and basic when it comes to placement. The scanned ‘somewhat lopsided’ and hand drawn sketches are to illustrate part of the ongoing process of ‘refinement’ ~ and both the small and broad ‘Feng Shui factors’ that can shift a good design into a flowing, harmonious and ultimately ‘fantastic’ space.
