Vastu Shastra is an ancient Indian science designed to bring positive
energy into your home and promote wealth and prosperity. Not unlike Feng Shui,
the Vastu Shastra is a system of architecture that focuses on the
connection between humans, and the homes in which they inhabit. Vastu
Shastra describes the principles of layout, measurement, design and
space arrangement. From your front door to your outdoor room, each area
has guidelines to increase enhance the flow of energy, known as ‘Prana’
in your home.
Modern home design now uses these concepts to guide rather than dictate
their home and building designs, through the adaptation of the
traditional square-grid mandala. There are a few elements to Vastu which
Metricon can accommodate. In respecting the traditions of many
different cultures, we learn more about home design and it helps our
floorplans to stay unique and above the competition.
Why is it important?
According to Vastu Shastra, the universe is composed with the same
five elements, fire, water, earth, air and space. Vastu Shastra focuses
on maintaining balance between these five elements which in turn
encourages positive energy. Following Vastu principles when building a
home is said to help eliminate the negative energy and promote the flow
of positive energy within your new abode. With increased positive energy
in your life, Vastu suggests that you may see improvements in your
finances, success, relationships and health.
